Arts and jazz auction Saturday

By Tara Nelson

The Blaine Fine Arts Association has scheduled its 11th annual Arts & Jazz concert, dance and auction for 7 p.m. Saturday, November 17 at the Blaine performing arts center (PAC) at 975 H Street.

All of the funds raised from the live and silent auctions will help offset expenses that enable students to receive arts experiences beyond the Blaine school curriculum.

The concert’s successful 11 years have raised more than $4,000 in annual arts scholarships for art, band, choir and drama students, as well as funding for art programs and the purchase of equipment, music and instruments for students.

The event features art, gourmet dinners, cruises and get-aways and goods and services donated by local merchants.

Deadlines for the auction catalog was November 7 but auction items may still be submitted before Friday, November 16.

For more information, call BFAA auction coordinator Dorita Gray at 380-1634 or Tammi Kramme at 332-4218.

The Blaine Fine Arts Association is a non-profit organization of volunteer parents, teachers, and members of the Blaine, Birch Bay and Point Roberts communities.
