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!

Winter Warm Up Dinner & Auction is our newest event, with a long tenure. Previously known as Oktoberfest for Highline, this fun-filled evening of food and friends benefits basic needs programs offered to students across Highline Public Schools. 

The event features a huge silent auction, lively live auction, a delicious dinner provided by local restaurants, a raffle, and more. Learn more about this cozy evening in support of the Highline Schools Foundation here.

For more than 20 years, 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. Now known as the SEA Charity Golf Tournament, this tournament is held annually in mid-July, and is planned through a joint committee of HSF Staff and volunteers from the Port of Seattle and SEA Airport organizations. Get all the details about the SEA Charity Golf Tournament 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. This event is typically held in early April.
