Community Breakfast at Third Place Commons on Feb 16

Tuesday, January 31, 2017


Join Third Place Commons on Thursday, February 16th for the Annual Community Breakfast. This year’s festivities will feature both familiar program favorites and some fun surprises.

The always lively, fast-paced breakfast is Third Place Commons’ biggest fundraiser, and fun-raiser, of the year – the perfect time to come together and show support for our shared Commons Community!

This year’s theme will focus on music and arts programming at the Commons, and especially the youth programming that gives youngsters countless chances to engage, learn, and grow both as audience members and as participants!

Third Place Commons is proud of the many partnerships that make Commons programming such an invaluable community resource, including partnering with Shoreline Schools to welcome regular student arts programming from musical performances to PTA Reflections events.

In addition, Third Place Commons is delighted to recognize two outstanding arts educators from Shorecrest High School with this year’s Friends of the Community Award.

Shorecrest’s Music Chair Vince Caruso and Art Chair Laura King will be honored jointly at the event for their efforts to help local students learn and thrive through the arts. Join the fun on Feb. 16th to show your support for these excellent educators!

And speaking of students learning and thriving through the arts, gifted musician and recording artist Ian McFeron is a Shorecrest grad who has toured across America bringing his unique blend of acoustic pop meets Americana, blues, and swing to audiences everywhere.

Ian will offer a short keynote address at the breakfast to share a little about his journey from local music student to nationally known musician, and how the Commons has fit into that journey.

Don’t miss this chance to join friends, neighbors, and colleagues for great conversation, a lively program, and a fantastic opportunity to support an organization that sits right at the heart of our community. Doors open at 7am and you’ll be on your way to a great day by 8:30pm. Tickets are $50/seat, or bring your friends to a table for eight for just $375. Buy your tickets here!

Every year, Third Place Commons hosts over 900 free events for all ages including live music (and dancing) every Friday and Saturday night and community performances by local schools, private studios, community nonprofits, and amateur musicians.

Kaleidoscope Play and Learn sessions offer children from infants to aged 5 a chance to explore, discover, and have fun with their caregivers on a weekly basis while special family programs like Halloween at the Commons and Family Day at the Farmers Market have become popular annual celebrations for families throughout the community.

And since events at the Commons are always free and open to everyone, Third Place Commons provides a uniquely accessible venue that serves our community like no other.

Of course, Third Place Commons also presents the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market from May to October each year where they make fresh, healthy, and locally grown and produced foods readily available to everyone.

And their Market Bucks food assistance program, funded by local donors just like you, provides vital access for low-income neighbors who otherwise might not be able to benefit from these same nutritious goodies like fruits, vegetables, dairy, eggs, meats, and fish.

It’s your support that makes all of this programming possible each year and the annual breakfast is the ideal time to show that support! Contact programs@thirdplacecommons.org or call 206-366-3302 with questions, and get your tickets online at ThirdPlaceCommons.org/breakfast2017. Tickets can also be purchased in-person at Third Place Books.

Third Place Commons is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to fostering real community in real space. It is located at 17171 Bothell Way NE in Lake Forest Park.
