Burien’s Community Center was hopping on Friday night as it played host to the Discover Burien annual dinner and silent auction and the presentation of Citizen’s Awards by the City of Burien.

Besides raising operating funds for Discover Burien and recognizing outstanding members of the community, the event also served as an 18th anniversary celebration for the City of Burien. The city was officially formed on February 28, 1993 becoming Washington’s 269th city.

The event was sponsored by Jim Coleman, DDS and Waste Management.

Attendees enjoyed dinner and drinks provided by the following local businesses:

    What a fantastic event! Everything was perfect, food, people and the awards.
    Someone, however, accidentally went home with my long black coat. The coat that was left was along black coat had gloves with fur trim in the pockets. Please contact Debra George so she can exchange coats.

    I hope Patti found her coat!

    I’ve been to all the awards dinners since the 10th Anniversary Party at the Elks Club! I’ve been to Godschalks, to the Yoga studio and now the community center. In my opinion this one was just the best. The food was great, the room was great…..and Scott did a good job of keeping the evening moving right along! Congrats DB on a fine party.
