“Spring is coming, mark your calendars for March 25,” said Jill Massengill, president of the North Bend Educational and Cultural Association (NBECA). Saturday, March 25th is the date of this year’s NBECA spring scholarship auction, 6 to 9 p.m. at the Si View Community Center in North Bend.

This popular local event boasts food and entertainment, plus live and silent auctions in support of NBECA’s scholarship program. Mount Si High School Culinary Arts program students will cater the event and the high school Jazz Club will provide live music.

Tickets go on sale in February.

In 2016, two $1,000 scholarships were awarded to Mount Si High School students who demonstrated service to their communities, earned at least a 2.0 grade-point average and had plans to continue their education after graduation.

A $2,000 adult learner scholarship was also awarded to a Festival at Mount Si and Scholarship Auction volunteer, who will continue to assist NBECA in its community work.

The organization is working to increase the number of scholarships with proceeds from the spring auction.

NBECA was formed in 2005 to support community events that promote local business, to provide educational scholarships, and to bring people together in service and celebration. NBECA has been organizing the Festival at Mount Si for the past 17 years and last year launched the scholarship programs in fulfillment of its vision of working together for a strong, inclusive and healthy community.

For more information contact Michelle Meyer, auction coordinator at michellemeyer.vp@gmail.com or call (907) 230-5617. To learn more about NBECA and its activities go to www.festivalatmtsi.org.

Donations to the community scholarship can be mailed to P.O. Box 1170, North Bend, WA 98045
