The Blaine Fine Arts Association has scheduled their annual Arts & Jazz auction and dance benefit concert to help fund the Blaine high school wind ensemble’s upcoming trip to Japan.

Items include golf and spa packages, wine tours, food, boat accessories, art, and sporting goods donated by local merchants.
“It really is a celebration about our students, our school and our community­,” said Dorita Gray an event organizer. “The generosity of the community just blows us away every year. We’ve got an amazing selection of auction items this year, as with every year.”

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, January 22, at the performing arts center in Blaine. The auction will feature donations from businesses and individuals with proceeds benefiting scholarships and experiences beyond the curriculum in the Blaine school district. The wind ensemble group will leave Sunday, January 30, for the Funabashi Music Festival in Tokyo, Japan.

The PAC is located at 975 H Street. Admission is $5 and includes beverages and hors d’oeuvres. For more information, contact Dorita Gray at 360/380-1634
