The generosity of the businesses and people in the Burien area is coming out and shining like the bright sun on a summer’s day, and here’s proof – an exclusive peek at the items up for bid at Wednesday’s Fire Victim Fundraiser Auction at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub:

Some items will be in the Silent Auction, which starts at 6pm, and others in the Live Auction, which will begin at 7:30pm. There will most certainly be many more items up for bid, but this is a good taste of what to expect, so get your wallets ready…

All proceeds from the event, as well as the entire day’s profits from Mick Kelly’s, will be donated directly into a special Fire Victims Fund set up at Sterling Savings Bank.

We here at the B-Town Blog highly recommend that people consider donating either cash or Gift Cards, as a) you don’t know who else may have bought the same specific item(s) and b) what if the recipient doesn’t like those yellow/orange polka-dotted socks you bought? With a Gift Card, the recipient gets to choose what they want, and we believe this empowerment is also an excellent form of therapy.

Donations are also being accepted at 156 SW 152nd Street; the space currently shows “Christian Supply” as the tenant, but they vacated the space a few months ago and the landlord has generously donated the space to use for six weeks:
