The Northshore Holiday Showcase, an event planned to celebrate Northshore students' seasonal art, is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Veterans Day weekend at Molbak's Garden and Home, 13625 N.E. 175th St. in Woodinville. A portion of the weekend sales will be donated to the Northshore Schools Foundation, benefiting all students in the Northshore School District (NSD).
Each day from noon to 2 p.m., students from the Northshore Teaching Academy will supervise a children’s craft area along with a cookie decorating station and holiday card making station to honor the military. The event is coordinated by the students of the NSD Event, Hospitality and Tourism management, a high-school Career Technical Education (CTE) course in Northshore.
“This event creates a great opportunity for the staff, parents and alumni of the Northshore School District to get a jump start on their holiday shopping and raise much needed funds for our schools,” says Carmin Dalziel, executive director of the Northshore Schools Foundation. “We love these win/win/win opportunities where people get a quality shopping experience, we are able to support our local economy and there is a benefit to students, too.”
Instructor Geoffrey Gilmore comments, “I am extremely proud of the students in our Event Planning Class who have worked diligently coordinating this event and have generated a wide assortment of support from students and programs throughout the district. We are excited to be involved in showcasing the talents of Northshore students.”
