This year’s Valentine’s Gala for the North Kitsap Boys and Girls Club was once again a fabulous success with many to thank.
Held Feb 10 at the Oak Table Café and the Firehouse Theater in Kingston, some 150 participants enjoyed champagne and hors d’oeuvres during silent and live auctions just before the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” The event netted some $20,000 for the club due to the efforts of the North Kitsap community. The club has grown to more than 120 individuals from North Kitsap middle schools.
While the list of individuals to thank would take an entire paper (the coordinating committee includes some 30 individuals), special recognition goes to the Greater Kingston Kiwanis, Columbia Bank, Kitsap Bank, the Kingston Chamber of Commerce and, of course, Ross McCurdy and the Oak Table Café, plus Craig Smith and the Firehouse Theater.
Donors contributing to the live auction included Pat Bennett-Forman, Hal and Helen Hoover, Savage Vine Wine Shop and Tasting Room, Point No Point Lighthouse, Dave Muller, Kim Hoover, Diana Kingsley, North Kitsap Fire & Rescue, Todd Fischer, Kingston Firehouse Theater, and Jossara Jinaro.
