The Center for Wooden Boats’ Gala & Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year. Your generous support will:

  • welcome over 4000 youth to our docks for hands-on experiences.
  • preserve a fleet of heritage small craft for all to sail & appreciate.
  • ensure access to the water for our entire community- for free!
  • change lives one boat at a time.

Back by popular demand are:
Emcee: Jake Beattie, the Executive Director of the Northwest Maritime Center
Auctioneer: David Silverman

The evening includes special prizes, exciting games, the “Golden Ticket Raffle,” Feeding Frenzy, Dessert Dash, Heads or Tails and new, zany surprises courtesy of our Auctioneer.

Cocktail attire requested.

Come ready for a delightful evening amongst fellow CWB friends and supporters.
