April in Paris C’est Tres Magnifique!
The Festival of Music Annual Dinner and Auction delighted 160 guests gathered at Settlemyer Hall on April 30th. Attendees strolled the streets of Paris to bid on 100 items generously donated by local businesses to raise funds for our summer concert series and educational outreach to students in Whatcom County. Accordion player Terhi Miikki-Broersma and vocalist Sherrie Kahn entertained during dinner, and auctioneer Kent Loomer and emcee Maddy Newman orchestrated the bidding on live auction items consisting of exceptional experiences, international trips, art, theater packages, boat trips, and more. With the generous support of our attendees, sponsors, and donors, we were able to raise over $111,000!
