Shake, Rattle and Roll at FUSION’S annual art auction Aug. 7

Proceeds help enable FUSION to raise funds to provide professional case management for each of the families the organization serves.

Pull out the poodle skirts, polka dots and saddle shoes.

Join FUSION for an exciting trip back to the 1950s at their annual fundraiser and art event from 4-9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7 at Dumas Bay Centre, 3200 SW Dash Point Road, Federal Way. The theme this year is “The Fusion Fabulous Fifties – Shake, Rattle and Roll!”

Come enjoy Elvis shakin’ things up, Dick Clark spinning top 40 hits and classic cars. Also a photo booth with zany dress-ups and props. 1950s attire is encouraged — FUSION will be looking for best dressed outfits.

Rumor has it that “Elvis” will be making an appearance during the event.

Sip a root beer float, savor a turn-back-the-time menu of burger sliders, sloppy joes, mom’s potato salad, appetizers, pineapple upside down cake and much more.

The event will also include live and silent auctions.

Bid on a seven-day cruise for two to visit Alaska, the Caribbean, New England or Mexico. Many live and silent items will be on the auction block, from entertainment, sports packages, getaways and much more. Buy a golden ticket (only 100 available). The winner gets first choice of any live auction item.

Proceeds help enable FUSION to raise funds to provide professional case management for each of the families the organization serves, as well as pay for operating costs and general maintenance for the homes they provide.
