Calling all superheroes! The PNA spring fundraiser is BACK IN ACTION on April 30
Time to assemble for the action-packed return of a beloved PNA tradition, the spring fundraiser! This year’s event is a superhero-themed party called Back in Action! and we’re thrilled to unite the community for a stupendous evening on Sat, April 30. Team up with your superhero squad in the Phinney Center Blue Building to raise funds for our programs and enjoy:
BIDDING ONLINE IN A SILENT / LIVE AUCTION HYBRID
Use your phone to bid on amazing auction items! All bidding will be done online and you are in control as you explore the treasures in our hideout. Our super volunteers will also be available to bid on your behalf with laptops.
Expect to find fun goody baskets, incredible tasting events, thrilling experiences around Washington, and other awesome packages. But don’t worry, we’ll still rock that live auction energy: our fantastic emcee Mari Neubauer, who is also co-owner of The Bar Method Phinney Ridge, will steer the night and deliver updates on hot items to watch!
PLAYING TERRIFIC GAMES AND FUNDING ESSENTIAL NEEDS
Ready for excitement? Play heads-or-tails with our emcee, reach for mystery prizes, race for raffle tickets, and much more! Our fantastic Fund-a-Need auction will make a grand return, too, so raise your bidder number up, up, and away to give directly to our community-driven work!
INVOKING A MARVELOUS ALTER EGO
Show your superhero (or supervillain!) side to the world! Our past fundraiser parties have summoned astounding themed costumes and we expect no less this year. Use your imagination to choose heroes and villains that speak to you—Princess Leia, Yzma and Kronk, Nyota Uhura, Tank Girl, anyone from any comic book. With great costumes, comes a great party.
CONSUMING INCREDIBLE COCKTAILS, MOCKTAILS, AND DINNER
Superheroes deserve super drinks and dinner and we’ll deliver! Sip fun flavors as you scan the horizon for auction items that need your bids. Or, enjoy local beer and wine, if that’s your fancy. Stop by our food stations to pick up tasty dinners and fuel more heroic feats.
DASHING FOR DESSERTS
Delicious desserts await you at Back in Action! Muster your superhero table team and bidding cards for the chance to win scrumptious sweets. The highest bidding team picks dessert first, so don’t let low bids be your kryptonite!

You, and all our superheroes, make our vital community-driven work possible. We can’t wait to see you save the day at Back in Action! on Sat, April 30 at 5:30 pm. It’s fundraisin’ time!
Please call PNA Events Manager Jenny Marquette at 320-310-7963 if you would like to purchase Back in Action! tickets using a check. Want to donate an auction item? Email Jenny at [email protected]!
You can also join our superhero squad by volunteering! We’re seeking help with setting up and decorating, tech support and data entry, and cleaning up.
Can’t make the party in person? Stay virtual and join the online auction from your secret lair (or living room). Online bidding registration is free and gives you access to our amazing auction catalog. Please note: there are no livestream programs or other event amenities available with this option. It only provides access to the online bidding.
Registration is required to bid online and we highly recommend registering before the day-of to avoid tech issues.
Thank you to our Back in Action! event sponsors!
