Live Auction with auctioneer David Silverman. With a unique background in improv and musical comedy, he is probably one of the best traveled actors you will ever meet. David has climbed Mt Rainier, Mt Kilimanjaro and Machu Picchu: his travel stories are entertaining as well as insightful and inspiring.
Live Auction also with Emcee Matt Lorch.. Having worked as a news anchor and reporter for 26-years in some of the country's largest markets including Seattle, Boston, Miami, and Baltimore, Matt developed an audience engagement style all his own. He has a true passion for hosting fundraising events for nonprofit organizations. Some of his clients include Seattle Children’s Hospital, Woodland Park Zoo, Special Olympics Washington, The Museum of Flight, Mary’s Place, Camp Korey, EvergreenHealth Foundation, Northwest Kidney Centers, Boyer Children’s Clinic, Cancer Pathways, Haring Center, Meany Center for the Performing Arts, Town Hall Seattle, Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation, PROVAIL, Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center, Seattle Festival of Trees, Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, Easterseals Washington, American Heart Association, Bridge of Promise, Wonderland Child and Family Services, Seattle Works, The Friendship Circle, Best Buddies, Bridge Disability Ministries, Brigadoon Service Dogs, and numerous local private schools and PTSAs. Matt’s a local guy. He grew up in the Seattle area, graduating from Sammamish High School in Bellevue and the University of Washington. When he’s not hosting events for organizations, you'll find Matt spending time with his wife and two children..
Dancing following the Live Auction with DJ Sean Denard. While serving in the army in North Carolina, Sean had the opportunity to DJ at the NCO club. He quickly discovered that he not only had a gift for being a DJ, but he loved it as well. After returning to Seattle, Sean opened Denard Productions and made this his full-time career.
Your safety is our first concern:
We will be following Washington State guidelines in effect at the time of the event.
- All attendees are encouraged to be vaccinated.
- Attendees may wear a face mask, if desired.
- Please use good judgement.
The necklace and T-shirt are still available with proceeds going to further FSHD researchers like those who presented at the 2021 conference.
