More than 270 people showed up for Cascadia Art Museum’s inaugural gala fundraising auction Aug, 27 in Woodway, which grossed $340,000.

“As a start-up museum, we were blown away on all levels by the community’s involvement and support,” said Marni Muir, auction chairperson.

Edmonds' Cascadia Art Museum held a fundraiser at the home of Lindsay and Carolyn Echelbarger in Woodway.

A range items valued at more than $40,000 were donated for the auction.

Sponsors were Carter Subaru, Royal Bank of Canada, Harbor Square Athletic Club, Swedish Medical Group, Windermere Real Estate, ECA, EAFF, EdCC, First Financial Northwest Bank, People’s Bank, Dewar Meeks and Ekrem, J.Rankin Jewelers, JM Cellars and Opticus Media of Edmonds.

“We know the museum has had a remarkable first year, but never expected we would see this level of support so early on,” said Cascadia Art Museum’s board Chair Lindsey Echelbarger who, along with his wife Carolyn, hosted the event.

“It is a huge encouragement as we plan our future and begin our second year of operation.”
