Winter Warm Up

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. Save the date and bring your friends for this cozy evening in support of the Highline Schools Foundation.

Save the Date: 2023 Winter Warm Up Dinner and Auction

Friday, November 10th, 2023 at the Cove at Normandy Park

Join us once again for this new favorite event, the Winter Warm Up Dinner and Auction! Tickets will be on sale in September, but sponsorship opportunities and auction procurement are underway now! If you are interested in donating an item or experience, please contact Erin Lee via email here, as well as if you are interested in sponsorship opportunities for the event. 

The Winter Warm Up Dinner & Auction was a Smashing Success!

Thanks to the generosity of our guests, sponsors, and donors, our first Winter Warm Up Dinner & Auction was a success all around. 
Early tallies indicate that we raised just over $60,000! Along with the dozens of coats donated by our guests and community, these funds will go straight to work supporting basic needs across Highline Public Schools. We have exceeded nearly all of our goals for the evening, and are truly grateful for the incredible generosity of our Highline Community. Thank you to our guests and table hosts, volunteers, staff, trustees and countless Highline Public Schools staff for making Winter Warm Up an evening to remember!
