The chance of winning should be pretty good given that we are expecting over 200 games to be available. There will be a silent auction for higher value games, some of which are new and popular. The auction will have a low reserve, giving you the opportunity to get these games inexpensively. Most importantly, it’s for a great cause. You don’t need to be present to win. Raffle And auction will be 5-6 pm


Uptown is at Delridge/Andover.

FYI: NO ALKI LIGHTHOUSE TOURS: The Coast Guard Auxiliary, which leads Alki Point Lighthouse tours this time of year, says it is too low on volunteers this weekend, so no tours.
