Happy Holidays Everyone! It’s that time of year again and we’ve come up with a creative way to have fun with the season and incorporate art and design into a community project for the entire community to be involved with!

Pick up your holiday ornament at The Alliance For Pioneer Square office at 2nd and Yesler where you will have a first come, first serve pick of one of three sizes of round holiday hanging ornaments to decorate/paint/etc. Call 206-624-0978 or email lisa@pioneersquare.org to arrange pickup at The Alliance office. If you cannot make it during the daytime business hours, you can pick up ornaments at the 619 Western Building by appointment with Jen Vertz at 206-473-2103.

The deadline for ornaments to be delivered is on December 12th at 4pm. Make sure to leave a business card with all contact info with your ornament.

The silent auction will begin on the 14th of December and will run through the 16th at 7:00 pm at Tat’s Deli. 50% of the final bid will go to the artist, and 50% to The Alliance for Pioneer Square. The minimum bids on each ornament will be as follows UNLESS you specify another minimum. Small ornaments (approx. 3.5 inches in diameter) will have a $25.00 minimum bid, Medium ornaments (approx. 5.5 inches in diameter) will have a $35.00 minimum bid, Large ornaments (approx 8 inches in diameter) will have a $45 minimum bid.
