The Kirkland Arts Center (KAC) is thrilled to announce that over $130,000 was raised during its 5th annual REDUX Benefit Auction. Over 200 people filled the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue on October 5th to sustain and support KAC programs and outreach, as well as the continued preservation of its historic landmark building. This year, KAC celebrates 51 years of establishment as a pillar of the Kirkland community and the predominant art center in Eastside Seattle.
Thanks to over 60 local artists who provided the backdrop for an outstanding art installation, and the generosity of many individuals and businesses, the live and silent auctions were able to generate real energy and funds during the bidding process. An outstanding auction committee and numerous enthusiastic volunteers worked tirelessly to make the event a spectacular success. And, KAC could not have accomplished REDUX without the very generous support of its sponsors, including Washington Holdings, Coughlin Porter Lundeen, Foster Pepper, Main Street Property Group, Stuart Silk Architects, and Museum Quality Framing. “I am excited to see such strong support of this community treasure, and grateful to be able to start much needed repair work to our building and implement additional art programs,” said KAC Executive Director Pamela Kirk Rembold.
