BFI Benefit art auction on September 13 at Washington Hall from 6-8 PM, where the art is either inspired by stories or poems written by our kids or the art inspired kids to write a story or comments about the piece. The event is casual with cocktails and appetizers, with live illustration being done by a local artist, and some kids and artists will be interviewed on stage talking about their art work and the accompanying story/poem. All proceeds of the event will support our new Yesler Terrace location opening up this fall!
