Community turns out for Greenwood Fire Relief

December 19th, 2009 · Comments

A decent crowd turned out at Upper Crust Catering for the silent auction benefiting the Greenwood Fire Relief Fund that helps businesses affected by the Greenwood arsons.

Over the course of a couple hours, people put down bids on dozens of items donated by local businesses.

Singer-songwriter Ali Marcus performed a soulful set. A recent transplant to the neighborhood, she donated her performance, as well as all of the proceeds from sales of her CDs last night.

We’ll report the totals when we get them.

In related news, our media partner, The Seattle Times, has a story and video (which you can see below) about the street artist mural going in on 85th just west of Greenwood Avenue.
