Northwest Washington Fair Benefit Auction for New Farm Pavilion June 21

The Northwest Washington Fair Foundation is hosting its 7th-annual Benefit Auction Event on June 21, 2019 in the Haggen Expo Building at the fairgrounds, 1775 Front St., Lynden, WA. A social hour with a no-host bar and silent auction will start at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and a live auction at 7:30 p.m. The live auction will include a Woodwind SG 24 Pellet Grill with Sear Box, VIP tickets to the nearly sold-out Demo Derby on Aug. 12 during the fair, a ride on a draft-horse hitch, a one-day rental of the beautiful Mt. Baker Rotary Building and a Seattle Seahawks helmet signed by star quarterback Russell Wilson. Tickets cost $40 apiece. Reservations are due June 7 by contacting Tarrah Jandoc at (360) 354-4111, ext. 210, or tarrahj@nwwafair.com. Major pledges from local individuals and businesses and a state grant already have raised much of the $5 million needed for the Farm Pavilion, which will be completed in time for this year’s fair Aug. 12-17. The Farm Pavilion also will include The Farming for Life Experience, scheduled to open in August 2020, said Jim Baron, general manager of the Northwest Washington Fair & Event Center. “The Farming for Life Experience will redefine farming in the 21st century, showcasing the rich history of farming in this region,” Baron said.
