Ever wanted to commit murder?

You could, you know! You could be a suspicious character in local author Mary Daheim's next mystery!

That's only one of hundreds of wonderful and surprising items you can bid on at the Queen Anne Helpline's 25th Anniversary Gala & Auction.

The Helpline has been serving our community for the past 25 years with emergency assistance with rent, utilities, prescriptions, food, clothing, toiletries, advocacy and referrals.

You can support it by bidding on fabulous Caribbean vacations, use of a condo in Maui, children's toys, handmade clothing, tea sets, massages, fabulous restaurant gift certificates and lots more. Your support is what makes the Helpline's service to this community possible.

The auction is Sunday, Oct. 14, at 5 p.m. in the beautiful Metropolitan Ballroom, Sheraton Seattle Hotel & Towers. Festivities begin with Northwest wine tasting and appetizers. Dinner and live auction follow at 7 p.m. with David Silverman, auctioneer, and Gregg Hersholt of KIRO Radio, emcee.

Tickets are $85, with proceeds benefiting the Queen Anne Helpline. For reservations, call 282-1540 or go to www.queenannehelpline.org to register.
