Keys for Kids

What a Night!

Approximately 220 guests came out to La Conner Flats between Friday & Saturday night to enjoy a night of games, gourmet food & drink, and a whole lot of singing and dancing—all to support the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County—to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

The weather was absolutely perfect as attendees enjoyed the social hour and games. Then the evening cooled as the action heated up. Rich Wyman & Kirk Garrett dueled it out on their keys, as the song requests poured in. On Friday night, it seemed like folks selected the perfect song that would prompt someone to outbid them immediately, raising the most funds. Of course there was the iconic battle between country fans and non-country fans, and at one point the first few lines of the Brady Bunch theme song rang out, before it was quickly quashed. Guests were certainly challenged to hear a full song!. A playful spirit abounded as guests took to the dance floor throughout the night.

Where Friday was a steady simmer, Saturday jumped straight into the frying pan. The first song of the night was Raise your Glass by Pink for $1000. The high bids kept pouring in—no one heard a song for less than $250. The night began to gain some serious dancing ferver with a rendition of Low by Flo Rida and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, and eventually came to a close as the final notes of The Devil Went Down to Georgia rang out. 

When both night’s were tallied, over $60,000 was generated for the Clubs. This is an increase over last year, due in part to increased sponsorships, fuller attendance, and the exuberance and generosity of the attendees. The Clubs are sincerely grateful for all contributions made and look forward to seeing everyone next year.
