An enormous THANK YOU to our donors, sponsors, members and volunteers who made this year’s Homecoming event a success!
Last night, YOU raised $166,000 to help students and their families. A fun time was had by all! More photos to be posted soon…
Next Sunday is Homecoming!
Weekends in Seattle are reserved for showing off your Seahawk pride. And, at this year’s Homecoming we are not short on blue and green. We’ll have Seahawks Football tickets, Seahawks Jerseys (including an autographed jersey of a certain Superbowl Winning QB!); Seahawks Game Day Baskets; and handmade jewelry and sweaters in blue and green. A little something for every Seahawks fan.
9 Days Until Homecoming!
The items for our auction sure are looking swell this year, with hotel stays, tickets to attractions, theater shows, music performances and sporting events–you could stay busy around Seattle this year. Did we mention more than 35 gift cards to restaurants for every occasion? From Seattle favorites Dick’s Burgers to Canlis and everything in between–the auction is definitely a recipe for fun (and of course those very polite bidding wars)!
10 Days Until Homecoming!
From preparing auction items to checking guests out at the end of the night–volunteers make Homecoming a successful fundraising event. While many have signed up, we still have a few open positions. We are looking for auction spotters, auction runners, and table monitors, for our event on Sunday, Oct. 19 at Lynnwood Convention Center.
Please call 206-526-7944 to volunteer. Come for the entire evening or for an hour or two, every volunteer helps!
11 Days Until Homecoming!
If you haven’t purchased raffle tickets yet–there’s still time!
Winners will shop, chill out, and work out with a $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card, a 55″ JVC Smart TV, or Fitbit. One could be yours! Look for the raffle tickets sellers (you can’t miss ‘em!) at Homecoming. This year, tickets are 1 for $10 or 3 for $25.
12 Days Until Homecoming!
Our terrific all-volunteer, auction-item-procurement team has been working very hard! For the last several months, they have been finding exciting auction items to help make Homecoming a success. Thank you to Debbie Geddes, Jennie Rogers, Bonnie Meyers, Janet Haltom-Ames, and Lynn Murphy for putting in many hours and discovering some truly awesome auction items.
For the next 12 days we’ll be giving you a peek of what you’ll find at Homecoming this year…
Thank you to Circle Members and The Board of Trustees who have donated items for the many lovely baskets we will be auctioning off. From a Garden Cart Basket to several Holiday-Inspired Baskets–these baskets are filled to the brim with creativity and fun!

Volunteers needed for Homecoming Auction!
Volunteers are the heart of Seattle Milk Fund. Without the tens of volunteers who come out for a special day or evening to fulfill the utmost important roles for our events, these events could not take place.
We’re recruiting now for several great Homecoming Volunteer Roles. Seeking high spirited, fun folks to take on some really important tasks, like number crunchers, high-spirited sales minded people (great for teens and young adults), runners, gate keepers to monitor our auction tables, and just about anyone in between.
