Oktoberfest for Highline

Fun and Funding for the Highline Schools Foundation

Throughout the year, Highline Schools Foundation puts on several events to celebrate our community, promote the work we do throughout Highline Public Schools, and raise the critical funds necessary to continue that work throughout the year. 

Sponsorship, planning committee, and volunteer opportunities are available for all of our events. Check the links below, or contact Erin Lee at for more information on our events.

Burien Brat Trot is a true community celebration that brings out the fun in all of us and it also raises critical funds for Highline Schools Foundation. Brat Trot is a flat and fast 5k fun run and kid’s race, throughout the streets of Burien followed by Bavarian Fest, the best street party around! Family and dog friendly! Brat Trot is typically held the last Sunday of September. Check out the Brat Trot page for more info!

Oktoberfest for Highline is a perennial favorite event for district employees, foundation supporters and our incredible community partners. Oktoberfest is typically held in mid-October at The Cove in Normandy Park, and features food and drinks from The Tin Room and Georgetown beer, live and silent auctions, and an opportunity to celebrate the work of the Foundation. Learn all about Oktoberfest here.

Proceeds from this fun, annual tournament allows Highline Schools Foundation to provide programs and substantial college scholarships to bright, capable and hard-working students who would be unable to attend college without financial assistance. Our students and their families are forever grateful for the sponsors, golfers, volunteers and donors who support and participate in the STIA Golf Tournaments. The STIA Tournament is held in mid-July, and planning is already underway for the 2022 Tournament. Get all the STIA details here.

The Gold Star Fundraising Breakfast is a much-anticipated celebration and fundraiser to benefit the Highline Schools Foundation, which is the only nonprofit organization supporting all Highline Public Schools. Gold Star is a time to highlight our corporate and community partners, and celebrate our Gold Star Awards winners from across the district. Typically held in April, we are in the early planning stages for the 2022 Gold Star Breakfast and are seeking our volunteers for a Gold Star event committee. Learn more on our Gold Star page here.
