Today, you’ll find volunteers from the 34th District Democrats in a booth at the Delridge Day festival – just hours after the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the Garden Party. Last night, partygoers basked in evening sunshine at West Seattle Nursery, with the theme “All-American Barbecue,” and with this area’s highest-ranking politician serving as auctioneer/emcee:
With King County Executive Dow Constantine, that’s the 34th DDs’ chair Tim Nuse at left, and the ubiquitous reminders that this is a presidential election year. The event’s theme even inspired some costuming – Chris Porter was in the red-white-and-blue spirit:
More of WSB contributing photojournalist Nick Adams‘ scenes from the Garden Party, ahead:
The party often draws friends from outside the 34th district (which includes West Seattle, White Center, and Vashon/Maury Islands) – here’s 32nd District State Rep. Cindy Ryu bidding at the auction:
The group had rounded up auction items ranging all the way to the exotic, like condos in Spain. Among the many bidders during the course of the event, Sue Backs:
There was a silent auction, too – perusing the bids in the next photo, at center, is Sharon Huling:
It wasn’t all about bidding. There was food – meat from The Swinery on the grill, and sweet treats too:
And raffling – here’s Karl de Jong with the ticket bucket:
And with The Haggis Brothers playing, some got up to dance, like 34th DDs’ vice-chair Marcee Stone, with Max Vekich:
We’ll be checking on how the night penciled out:
And a report is likely during the 34th DDs’ next meeting – usually the second Wednesday of the month, 7 pm, at The Hall at Fauntleroy.
