May Street Elementary School holds its annual Teddy Webber Scholarship Dinner and Student Art Auction on Thursday. This event, which began in 1997, raises money for the school’s artist-in-residence program and the Teddy Webber Scholarship fund.
All are welcome to join in this community celebration featuring a lasagna dinner provided by Celilo Café and 3 Rivers Grill. Celilo chef Ben Stenn and 3 Rivers owners Jim and Courtney Dey are May Street parents.
Dinner is served from 4:30-6:30 p.m.; tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for students and seniors.
The evening’s family fun includes a silent and live auction, student art show and sale, plus a bouncy house and face painting for the kids. The halls of the school are filled with drawings and other creations made by students throughout the school year.
May Street visitors can go outside to the covered playground structure and see the single largest example of student art anywhere in the county — the Dragon mural that fills the three walls of the open-sided building. Artist Allison Bell Fox guided students in the fall and winter of 2013-14 in the painting of the massive mural, which includes chalkboard panels along its full length.
The live auction begins at 6:30 p.m. with local auctioneer Ron Chamness calling for bids. Some of the items being auctioned this year include unique art pieces made by students specifically for the event, a 12-foot, 6-inch Slingshot SUP board (and paddle) creatively designed by May Street students, a wine tasting limo tour, and a three-night beach house getaway, just to name a few.
For details, call the May Street Elementary School office at 541-386-2656.
