SOUTH BEND, Wash. — The Willapa Heritage Foundation is hosting the 22nd annual Hearts for the Arts dinner and auction from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, at the Willapa Harbor Community Center, located at 916 W. First St.
The foundations’ purpose is to promote the arts, artists and art organizations in the Pacific County area, and this event is the foundation’s only fundraiser of the year.
This year’s Hearts for the Arts dinner will be prepared by Tamra McConahy and include salad with Cajun ranch dressing, chicken and andouille sausage gumbo, cheddar corn muffins, and bananas foster with vanilla ice cream. It’s not your run-of-the-mill fundraising dinner — it has a Mardi Gras theme.
Along with dinner will be the silent auction, live auction and a raffle table, where attendees will find many individual art pieces for sale, as well as gift certificates and baskets filled with goodies.
Area artists have donated handmade art pieces for the event. A special highlight this year, artist Joanne Jambor will produce a piece for the live auction during the evening.
There will be a drawing for the gas raffle at the auction. Gas raffle ticket holders do not need to attend the dinner and auction in order to win the gas raffle prize of 100 gallons of gasoline. Raffle tickets maybe purchased at the following locations: South Bend Pharmacy, Jayden’s German Store, Raymond Pharmacy, Raymond Furniture, Elixir Coffee Shop, Bank of the Pacific, Heavenly Memories, Sunset Air or by calling 360-942-3677.
Tickets for this event will be $35 in advance and may be purchased at South Bend Pharmacy, at Raymond Pharmacy or by calling 360-942-3677. Tickets at the door will be $40. Space is limited.
