Boasting fantastic appetizers and a no-host bar, the auction will also be holding Bottle Ring Toss and Bottle Grab events, including a silent auction offering items from local breweries and cider houses. This is a great opportunity to mingle with some of the biggest Credit Union names in the Pacific Northwest and more importantly, to give back to those who need it the most. 

This event is open to all who want to make a difference in a child's life -- there is no YP or Credit Union affiliation requirement.
