Dine Out To Benefit Madrona K-8 On April 8

Madrona School

Almost anywhere you eat on 34th Avenue on April 8 will benefit Madrona K-8 School as part of its 6th annual Dine Out fundraiser. Participating restaurants will be donating a portion of the day’s sales to the school, which will be using the proceeds directly to support arts and enrichment programming, including funding two full-time artists in residence from Art Corps, the largest nonprofit arts education program in Seattle.

All you need to do to participate is let the restaurant know you’re there for Dine Out, and enjoy your meal! Participating 34th Avenue restaurants are: Bistro Turkuaz, Bottlehouse, Cupcake Royale/Verite, Hi Spot, Madrona Eatery and Alehouse, Naam, Pritty Boys Family Pizzeria, and St. Cloud’s. Barrio, on 12th Avenue on Capitol Hill will also be participating. Reservations are recommended if you choose a restaurant that takes them.

Dine Out Madrona is sponsored by the Madrona K-8 PTSA.

We will spare you the details since we have already written about the event but basically for $32.50 you can come drink some wine, eat some light hors d’oeuvre and meet some fellow Madrona and Leschi neighbors.  It is a fun event, one where you do not need to know anyone to have a good time, and well worth the ticket price.

6:30-9:30p
Glassybaby Studios, 34th & Union
Tickets $30

The event goes to support the Madrona Community Council, a 501c3.  In addition, a portion of all glassybabys sold that evening will be sent to Madrona K8. They’ll use these funds to improve the performance space in the “gymacafeterium” for future music and theater productions.  Music and the arts are really expanding at Madrona, and a good performance space is a big need for them in coming years.

Tickets Available for Second Annual Madrona Wine Tasting Event

Madrona Wine TastingThe date and venue have been set for the second annual Madrona Wine Tasting Event which is being put on by the Madrona Community Council to help support all the things that are sometimes taken for granted in our Seattle neighborhood such as Madrona Mayfair, Madrona Blossoms, Madrona Newsletter, Halloween Party, etc.  The event is scheduled for Saturday, November 3rd from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at Glassybaby studios (map).  Unlike last year, the Madrona Wine Tasting Event fortunately does not conflict with any Husky football home games so there is no excuse (well maybe one or two) to not make the event.  Tickets are $30 per person and are available to buy online.

Tickets include appetizers donated by Madrona restaurants, wine tasting from local growers, discount on bottle wines, and Glassybabys for sale with 10% of the proceeds going to Madrona K-8.
