WSBA Staff Raises Over $4,000 for Charity

wsba charity auction

One of my favorite WSBA staff traditions is our annual holiday auction for charity. WSBA employees exercise their baking, crafting, building, and other Martha Stewart-esque talents to create items for both live and silent auctions. Then we take a number and empty our wallets for charity.

WSBA Staff's favorite condiment: Mui's Legendary Hot Sauce.

Hot items (literally) in this year’s charity auction included several jars of a now-legendary homemade hot sauce (over $100 each), a “Curl up and Relax” gift basket ($105), a handmade “CAT-4” garden trellis (a bargain at $90, as it’s guaranteed to survive a category-4 hurricane or four cats!), the complete series of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. ($90), as well as lots of delicious baked goods, gift certificates, and hand-crafted items.

Treehouse for KidsOur charity of choice for the past several years has been Treehouse, a nonprofit committed to improving the lives of Washington kids living in foster care. This year, we raised over $4,000 for their programs. Treehouse helps foster children by providing a free “store” for clothing, school supplies, and other essentials, paying for normal childhood experiences like sports registration fees, a graduation cap and gown, summer camp, holiday gifts, and educational advocacy.
