Arts Alive! held its annual dinner auction on November 7, 2009. It was a success because of the many people who donated, volunteered, planned, and came to enjoy the evening! The mission of Arts Alive! is to support the arts on the Plateau through the giving of grants and scholarships; and because of the auction, our major fundraiser of the year, we will be able to continue on with this mission in 2010. (Here is an early SAVE THE DATE for the November 6, 2010 auction – “Beam Me Up Enumclaw!”) A big thank you goes out to the following businesses and individuals for their donations and volunteering. We could not have done it without each and every one of you!
