New way to find out what’s coming up

Just launched: Version 1.0 of our brand-new Events page, stocked with a variety of events coming up in West Seattle (and a select few elsewhere, but of WS relevance) over the next three months. If you are involved with an event of public interest and you don’t see it there yet, please send e-mail to tell us about it. One of the events on the page already is the October fundraising dinner/auction for West Seattle’s only private high school, Seattle Lutheran HS; WSB readers sent us full details too, including a call for more auction donations:

Support your local private high school while enjoying an evening of fun at our auction. The success of Seattle Lutheran High School depends on the support of our community. As the only private high school in West Seattle we need your help. Our goal is to be the regional leader in holistic education. Holistic education is dedicated to bringing out the innate potential in every student, balancing high academic standards with spiritual growth. Come learn about our new service learning focus where our curriculum is focused on empowering students to become engaged citizens strengthening our local community.

Below is the message from our 2007 auction invitation:

For 29 years, Seattle Lutheran High School has been exercising an above and beyond ministry – responding to God, who has blessed us in ways above and beyond our understanding – and expectations. For 29 years, our teachers have given above and beyond, and donors have given above and beyond, and students have been encouraged to craft a vision for their lives that is above and beyond anything they might have imagined.

This is an invitation for you to go above and beyond – with your generosity and your prayers, as together we encourage all our students to become everything God intended them to be. Please join us for a fun filled evening, supporting the mission of Seattle Lutheran High School. Bid on an assortment of Silent Auction items, followed by dinner and the Live Auction in the grand ballroom.

Thank you – for going above and beyond in everything you do!

Date: October 27th, 2007
Time: Doors Open at 5:30 pm
Location: Seattle Waterfront Marriott
Cost: $65 per person

We want to extend a special thank you to all the local businesses that have already donated goods or services to help make the event successful.

For anyone that is interested in donating, we will gladly accept donations through Oct 19th. If you are interested in making a donation to the event, advertising at the event, or attending the auction itself, please contact the school office at 206-937-7722 and someone on our Auction team will gladly coordinate the details.

    THANK YOU!!! I have been looking for something like this!! While it is nice to get the detailed update just before the weekend starts, I usually plan my weekend too far in advance to fit in many of the events that are posted there. This will help me so much!

Sorry, comment time is over.
