The Northwest Indian College in Bellingham, Wash., will hold its second annual TL'aneq' Gathering for a Celebration benefit dinner and auction on Saturday, April 24th, 2010 at the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, Wash.
NWIC’s goal for the evening is to raise $250,000 in support of the college’s cultural arts and education and to enhance our relations and understanding within the region. Our vision for education at NWIC is based in deeply held beliefs about relationships and stewardship. Tickets to the event are $250.
The event, co-hosted by David and Jonathan Syre (Trillium Corp), will include a pre-event reception, gourmet fare and a live and silent auction of Coast Salish cultural arts and experiences, including a tour of a renowned local master carver’s studio (Felix Solomon, who has artwork displayed at the Whatcom County Museum as well as private collections).
The college is currently seeking table captains, table sponsors, and ticket sales. We are also seeking artists who wish to donate art for the live or silent auction.
