Cascadia Art Museum in Edmonds held its annual gala, “Summer Stars,” over the weekend on the lawn of the historic Woodway home of Lindsey and Carolyn Echelbarger with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains.

The event, a fundraiser for the museum, featured Scratch Distillery cocktails on the bluff to a multi-course dinner in the tent from Shooby Doo Catering. It featured a golden ticket raffle and a live auction of art pieces, travel experiences and other items to bid on.

More than 300 attendees helped raised more than $435,000.

“The Summer Stars Gala & Auction is Cascadia Art Museum’s signature benefit event, raising critical funds to support our mission to celebrate Northwest visual art and design heritage,” said Leigh Ann Gilmer, Cascadia executive director.

“Funds raised this year will enable the museum to provide enriching experiences for our community through original exhibitions, public programs, educational outreach, and free admission for youth so that everyone can have access to the museum’s inspirational cultural resources and offerings.”
