An Evening to Remember

We’re beginning to plan our 2nd Annual Evening to Remember Auction and Wine Tasting.  Last year’s event was a huge success.  We had over 200 guests in attendance bidding on more than 250 items in the silent and live auctions.  We were able to raise over $21,000 to support our services. Not only did we raise money, but we had a great time, and people walked away with great deals on some really fantastic auction items.

We expect this year’s event to be bigger, and even better.  We’re currently scouting a larger location and have begun to collect items for both the live and silent auctions now.  The sky’s the limit when it comes to what you could donate to for the auction, but here are some ideas to get you started: 

Sporting event tickets: Silvertips, Aquasox, Seahawks, Mariners, Huskies, Storm, and  Cougars Tickets

Gift Baskets: Think outside the box and create a unique gift basket. Consider wine, jewelry, books and other need to have items

"With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

“The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

David Rose

Anchor, Q13 News and Host, Washington’s Most Wanted

“VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

Jennifer Gregerson

Mayor, City of Mukilteo

“VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

Jon Nehring

Mayor, City of Marysville

“VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.” 

Myrle Carner

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

“This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
