Join Us for a Garden Party

We warmly invite you to join us at the Tacoma Armory for a silent auction and dinner on May 2, 2020 at 5:30 pm.

At this semiformal event, we will enjoy a sit-down dinner with a garden party theme, amongst twinkle lights and spring florals, and a silent auction will provide an opportunity to win unique items and experiences generated by our community. Our evening will also feature our jazz band and choir students.

The purpose of this event is to celebrate Christian education, support our scholarship fund, and enhance our science program through sponsoring centrifuges and digital hot plates.

Tickets are $75 and will be available for purchase in February, 2020. Families may also sponsor an entire table (seats eight) for $570.

The 2020 Silent Auction & Dinner Event Space: The Tacoma Armory

Do you have an item you would like to donate?

We welcome individuals in our community to procure an item for the silent auction. Procuring an item does not necessarily require a purchase. If you think of your connections and resources, you might be sitting on a truly unique experience that someone else would love.

Do you own a cabin on the lake? Do you have a boat? Do you frequent your local restaurant often? Are you a season ticket holder? Does your company sponsor a suite for a local sports team? Do you know someone who gives flight lessons?

Download and complete our procurement form when you’re ready and send to cdille@chstacoma.org. Someone will be in contact with you regarding your donation within five days. If you still need some ideas, review our wish list below or reach out to Cindy Dille at (253) 759-9570 or cdille@chstacoma.org.
