The Spring Fling Silent Auction items are in, and if you haven’t already purchased your tickets (which will go up in price after April 3rd, hint, hint), you will when you hear what’s in store! Old time favorites such as Principal or Librarian For The Day, the vacation house in Ireland, and sailing trips with Ms. Barrow are being joined by some great new experiences, many of which are created or hosted by BF Day family members! Let me whet your appetite…
Hand-made American Girl Outfits, featuring the BF Day logo!
Home-cooked Italian meal or a home-cooked Irish meal with music and dance lessons
A greeting card-making party
A tarot card reading lesson
Fun for the whole family? We have Mariners and Sounders tickets (check your calendar– one set of tickets is for April 13th and comes with a parking space!), a Dim Sum lunch, or a family photo session! And if you can’t make it all the way to Ireland, stay stateside in a Mountain Condo Getaway by Mt. Baker instead!
Wanna team up with some friends a go in on a bid? Be thinking about the Sleep-over in the School (hosted by Principal Pearl on Friday May 31st) for up to 10 students, Ms. Barrow’s sailing trip for up to 8 kids, or a hip-hop dance party (with lessons by a professional dance instructor) in your home!
Looking for some self-care options: massage, tattoo time, salon experiences, Steven’s Pass lift tickets ,hot yoga, Parent’s Night Out punch card at Seattle Gymnastics Academy
Or if you want to put the kiddos first, how about piano/music lessons or martial arts classes?
Computer geek? We’ll hook you up with a year’s membership to Adobe’s Creative Cloud. NOT a computer geek? We’ve got you covered with a couple hours of computer repair/maintenance.
Student-made art– We got some! A large canvas piece made by Sawyer, Boren, and Jackson’s classes, and two smaller canvas pieces by Johnson, Faryar, Agrellas, Confehr and Boren’s classes.
Who knows– if you play your cards right, someone might bake you cookies, take you birding, work in your garden, haul something away for you, and give your kids a pizza party while you go out on a date on a sailboat or a scenic flight or movie! (Fine print: these are all separate auction items, but, again, if you play your cards right…)
We know, the possibilities are endless! Where to begin? What do choose? If you can’t decide, try your luck with the Golden Raffle and maybe you’ll be the one to snatch anything on the table!
Or if the high-drama world of raffles and bids isn’t your thing, we have slew of gift-cards donated by local businesses that you can walk up and buy it outright, including:
Smokin Pete’s BBQ
Top Pot Doughnuts
Kaosamai Thai Restaurant
Tall Grass Bakery
Baskin Robbins (Northgate store)

Buy your tickets!
That’s right, folks– something for everyone! Talk to your kids, partner, spouse, friends, classmates about what you want to bid on so you’re primed and ready to go. And come Party with a Purpose!!
Insider tips: Bring cash for extras at the bar; consider walking/biking/busing since parking is limited; wear pockets or purse so you don’t lose those valuable raffled tickets!
