dancing for salmon only

I am pleased to report that Friends of the Hylebos' annual Ruby Dance last weekend was a great success surpassing the fundraising goal by $3000! But then, with Sean MacLean of King FM fame as the emcee, Gene Duvernoy of Cascade Land Conservency as the keynote speaker, MacKenzie Allen as the auctioneer, Margery Godfrey as the event chair and Finch & Thistle as the event planners/managers/designers, how could it possibly be anything other than a great Saturday night in Federal Way??

Over 200 guests turned out to the King County Aquatic Center for an evening of silent and live auctions, an action packed program, rusted steel herons and raise the paddle. We exceeded our fundraising goals and a good time was had by all (even those working the event). Many thanks to all the volunteers and committee members who contributed time and willing hands. We couldn't have done it without you!
