Julie and Julia package during the Reel Grrls Gala and Auction at the FareStart Restaurant, downtown Seattle.
Reel Grrls Gala and Auction. The excitement at Reel Grrls annual celebration and fundraiser was truly inspiring. The evening featured an interview with an award-winning director, films made by Reel Grrls for other charitable causes, live and silent auctions, dessert dash, and the delicious food at the loft-style FareStart Restaurant.
Hot items: Seven nights in Barra di Navidad, Mexico; an authentic paella dinner; an Eat, Drink, Pray package; and an overnight at Wellspring Spa.
Financial goal exceeded and guests had a fabulous time!
