Oh, how tempting! Here’s a sneak peak of a couple of this year’s fabulous auction items…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Dinner

A dream come true!  An extraordinary eight-course dinner with wine pairing for 10. Curated and prepared by Adam Lehman, former Chez Panisse chef, and hosted in the magical meadow of longtime Bainbridge Islanders, Alan and Sally Black.  

Bloedel’s Secret Stash ~ Vintage Wine Tasting & Dinner

More surprises from the long-lost Bloedel cellar!  A private, elegant, lavish dinner experience for 10 at the Residence. Rare vintage wines, and newer standouts, paired perfectly with every course.

Winter Solstice Magic ~ A Walk In The Woods  

Embrace the darkest night of the year with a private, intimate lantern-lit walk through Bloedel.  Quietly wind through chilly meadows and silent forests. The journey ends with refreshments in a candle-lit Residence.
