Salute Woodinville 2023 – Post Event Wrapup

Salute Woodinville 2023 | I love the 80’s


Thank you to everyone who joined the Woodinville Chamber’s Salute Woodinville Dinner & Auction 2023. Together, you helped to raise funds to continue the important work of our Chamber.

“We look forward to hosting this signature event for our Chamber and community members each year,” says Woodinville Chamber Executive Director, Kimberly Ellertson. “This event is the perfect opportunity to dress up, enjoy what Woodinville has to offer and interact with your friends, neighbors and leaders in this community. Additionally, we get a chance to do some major good in this community. The Woodinville Chamber’s Board of Directors selects a different beneficiary each year. By raising our paddles we invested in the future business leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators of our community through the Woodinville Chamber Business Scholarship. This year, attendees raised $21,000 for the Woodinville Chamber Business Scholarship. We would like to offer a special thank you to Jake Whittenberg for producing our “Raise the Paddle” video and sharing the story of our Scholarship; as well as Michelle Millman for joining him in the introduction of the beneficiary.

Ticketholders were invited to the 80’s themed event at Liljebeck Farms and the outfitted attendees did not disappoint on this year’s theme.  A cocktail hour with spirits from NW Spirits, games, photos and the Silent Auction started the crowd of 150 off. A beautiful sit-down dinner from A Platinum Event, wine from Chateau Ste. Michelle and beer from 20 Corners Brewing were enjoyed as the Live Auction began.

We sincerely thank our Salute Woodinville attendees. “Supporting the Woodinville Chamber by attending Salute Woodinville helped ensure that your business community can continue to move forward and thrive,” says Kerrie La Guardia, Marketing Manager for the Woodinville Chamber. Funds from Salute Woodinville allow the Woodinville Chamber to continue to produce remarkable events for the entire community, like the Celebrate Woodinville Summers Concerts & Festival.

Michelle, Talking Rain, Brock’s Academy, EvergreenHealth, TEND Home Team, Tarte by Heritage, Northwest Outdoor Lighting, Heavy Restaurant Group, Woodin Creek Village, Woodinville Heritage Society and Katharina E.
