The post’s annual Spaghetti Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23 starting at 5 pm. We plan to host a wonderful dinner, courtesy of Chef Kay and a raffle for select items. We’re also hosting a Bidding Owl virtual auction for big ticket items. Although we’re planning for it to look like our past fundraisers, we may need to adjust our plans due to Covid, so please stay tuned for updates.

As always, we are looking to make this event a huge success. And as always, we need some help. Here’s how you can help ensure that we meet our fundraising goals:

1. Sell Tickets. We need to sell 200 tickets and all members should plan on selling between 5 and 10. You can pick up tickets at the post or have Jan mail them to you. You can also buy tickets on the BiddingOwl Auction site.

2. Get Raffle & Auction Prizes. You would be surprised by how many businesses are glad to support a good cause, so mention it to your favorite restaurant or bar. Do you belong to a museum? They may want to help too. Please put on your thinking cap and see if there is something you can do, make, donate, etc., that would make a prize that others would want. Personal services, hand-made crafts, fresh baked products, etc., come to mind. If you have high value auction items to contribute, please take a photo and upload to this Google Photos album along with a comment that includes the item description and fair market value.

3. Day-of help. We are also going to need kitchen, bar and raffle help the night of the event. If you would like to help, please let us know.

Contact Russ Seelig at 206-423-1150 or the post with questions, suggestions or to volunteer. Also, here’s a handy guide for participating in the virtual auction.
