4/18/2018 – Thanks to everyone who came out to our Annual Silent Auction & Swing Dance benefiting the music students of Madison. We were joined by a record number of parents, students, former students and folks from the community for an evening of dancing and live jazz by the professional musicians of the West Seattle Big Band, and the various student band and orchestra groups within Madison. Guests bid on silent auction items, enjoyed a slice of pizza, and raised their paddles for a record-breaking $23k in net profit donations. We’re thrilled to have had this opportunity to raise the much needed funds for the Madison Music Program, and we look forward to seeing you all at next year’s Auction & Swing Dance!
