The Blaine Fine Arts Association will be hosting its 15th annual Arts and Jazz auction and dance to raise money for music, art and drama education in the Blaine school district.

The silent auction will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, January 28, in the Blaine High School cafeteria and feature items donated by local businesses, including art, getaways, gourmet dinners and goods and services. All the funds received through the sale of auction items will provide scholarships, equipment and funds for art experiences beyond the Blaine school’s curriculum.

Through last year’s auction, the Blaine Fine Arts Association was able to increase their arts scholarships from $3,000 in 2010 to $4,300 last June. The district’s art, music and drama departments were also awarded $7,450 in funds for equipment, supplies, music and educational field trips.

Admission to the event is $5. For more information, contact auction coordinators Dorita Gray at 360/380-1634 or Christy Imperio at 360/201-4100.
