About 230 guests attended Youth Theatre Northwest’s fundraising gala March 4 at the historic Washington Hall in Seattle, helping raise $166,746.

The evening featured host/emcee radio star Kent Phillips, professional auctioneer Matt Smith and parent speaker King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci, along with performances from YTN’s talented youth.

Event programs included a silent auction, raffle, live auction, raise the paddle, dessert dash, mystery wine and jewelry pull.

The two headlining sponsors were the Boeing Company and John and Ellen Hill, and other sponsors were The Law Offices of Bucklin/Evens, Banner Bank, Thaxton Parkinson LLC and NW Lifestyle Homes.

The event is an annual board driven fundraiser with volunteer support.
