M Event 2015 - 2015 Champagne Gala Brunch - a Southwest Seattle Historical Society Event
The event -- the social and philanthropic event of the year, benefiting our historical society -- is 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, at Salty's on Alki, 1936 Harbor Ave. S.W.
The "Coming Home to the Homestead" theme takes off from the launch of restoration for the beloved Alki Homestead. The city landmark, first known as Fir Lodge, also is our "mother ship," because our "Birthplace of Seattle" Log House Museum served as its carriage house when it was built in 1904.
West Seattleite Marty Riemer, arguably the best-known Seattle broadcaster for the past three decades (KZOK, KJR, KXRX, The Mountain and presently the weekday morning host at 95.7 FM The Jet) will host a lively podcast at the event called "Wait, Wait, West Seattle ... Don't Tell Me!"
He will head a panel of West Seattle-based luminaries and quiz them on how much they know about the Alki Homestead and the rest of the Duwamish peninsula. (Celebrity panelists will be announced soon!)
Also featured will be a presentation by Catherine Gruye Alexander and Rob Gruye, daughter and son of 1950s Alki Homestead chef and manager Bob Gruye.
Tickets for the Champagne Gala Brunch are $100. Only a handful are left. Please order soon by clicking here!
