FACE Seattle 2009 presented by Caffe Vita

Tonight was the FACE Seattle event which benefited Sunflower Children Foundation. It was an an exciting evening of delicious wine (Young's Columbia Winery), art and amazing clothing from Barneys New York, plus they had a silent and live auction.

The event was held at the Herban Feast at SoDo Park (3200 1st Ave S) and it was the first time I have ever been there - It's such a great space!

The evening started with an open bar of wine and beer, appetizers, pizza from Via Tribunali, coffee by Cafe Vita, a wine toss, and a fabulous silent auction. (I was lucky enough to bid on a cut and color at Seven and got it!) John Curley was the auctioneer and MC for the evening. I had the privilege of meeting him earlier in the evening and even got a quick picture with him.

Melissa and I mingled around chatting with folks here and there and snapping a few pictures of the auction and crowd. Once the live auction started we grabbed a spot stage left and watched as John Curley busted out his auctioneer skills. All in all it appears the Sunflower Children's Foundation raised a nice amount of money for the kids.

The runway show was filled with amazing items from Barney's - Melissa and I were drooling over many of the dresses. The handbags and clothing were all courtesy of Barney's New York, the shoes however were not as they weren't condusive to the floors. No worries, the shoes were paired very well but sadly I don't know where they came from... It was a great show and an even better reason to be there - charity! Or should I say "it's for the kids!"
