Join us July 16th 2-6pm for our Annual Purse Auction to benefit Royal Family Kids. Last year we raised just under $14k to send foster kids to camp and into a mentor program. This year we have more auction items, more purses, and more rosé slushies! Thanks to all the people and community that makes this event happen!



We are back in 2015 with our Belles, Bling, and Bags event! All together last year we were able to raise over $15,000 dollars and send more the 60 kids to Royal Family Kids Camp. This year is all ready looking bigger and better with more purses and more Wine Coolers!

Thank you so much for your donations! We have gently used purses from Coach, Prada, Dooney, Gucci and more up for auction.

Mark your calendars and join our event on Facebook!

As you may know a portion of the proceeds from each bottle of Upsidedown Method Red goes to the Chill Foundation. We are excited to be a part of Art on Board this year and help Give Back.



By Chris Shalbot, Seattle, WA: Art on Board is a community-centric organization focused on promoting positivity, creativity, and youth involvement through the action sports and arts communities. Originally started as an entrepreneurship class project at the University of Vermont, Art on Board is quickly blossoming into a nationally recognized, community-based youth development program. By combining the active, creative lifestyles intrinsic to both the action sports and arts cultures, with hands-on community involvement, Art on Board aims to inspire the next generation of creative leaders.

The Art on Board National Tour events are a continuation of the organization’s roots as a University of Vermont entrepreneurship class “Make a Difference” project. Each event is a way to bring the community together for a celebration of creativity and collaboration. The main attraction in each city is a silent auction for one-of-a-kind snowboards, hand created by collaborating artists. Events also feature participation from local culinary artists, live music and live art, along with prizes and giveaways from partnering brands.

Seattle will mark the second of four national tour stops; the first to include a live art auction, Drink Water‘s Pathology Project as well as a skate jam.
