Washington Hall

Washington Hall has been a welcoming place where people gather, create, entertain, and celebrate—since it was first built in 1908. The Hall has been a cultural home to many communities and art forms, and for a long time embodied the soul of Seattle’s Central Area.

"Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Morris, Pat Graney, Bill T. Jones, David Byrne, Afrika Bambaataa, Fugazi, Elvis Costello, Massive Monkees, Macklemore, THEESatisfaction, and countless art, architecture and Seattle history lovers have walked these halls." —Historic Seattle

We hope to raise $40,000 at this milestone event, with a $50,000 stretch goal. All money raised is immediately allocated for Tuition Access—so we may benefit from those who could not consider independent school without such support, and for whom we need to hear from in order to realize true community.

Our auctioneer and good friend, Keita Williams, will lead our event (along with student hosts), a Raise the Paddle, and a small but mighty Live Auction.

To make this a successful event, we are looking for all sizes and values for donatable items ranging from hand-made art to tickets to a sports game you have season tickets for. More examples of desirable donated items include:
  • vacation home stays (even out of state)
  • airline miles
  • art - your art, a friend's art, etc.
  • fun/unique experiences
  • tickets to plays, concerts, sporting events, etc.

If you have connections you feel like you can tap into or the capacity to email businesses around Seattle for donated items, contact Maggie Rogers, PSCS Fundraising Lead would be more than happy to speak with you about it!

2024 PSCS Procurement Form

All donated items should be submitted by March 10th
So many families need a place just like PSCS, thank you for your support.


What is the date and when should I get to Washington Hall?

Our event is on Saturday, March 30, 2024. We will open the doors at 4:30pm for pre-event mingling, silent auction perusing, and student deejay vibes. Then, we'll start the seated event, performances, and dinner at 5:30pm.

Why are tickets $50?!

A $50 ticket covers the cost of a full catered meal ($20/person), as well as a seat in historic Washington Hall for one evening ($18.11/person)—the rest offsets a portion of additional costs for the event (fees, stage help, vendors, decor, etc).

We offer Sliding Scale tickets so anyone who has reservations about the cost will please still join us.

What's for dinner?

We'll have a fully catered, mexican meal with options for most dietary restrictions. More info on that soon!

I have other questions!

Please email our planning committee anytime.
