Prized Photographs Up for Auction at the TASTE of GSBA

The Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA), our region's LGBT Chamber, has received a donation of two spectacular photographs to auction off at the TASTE of GSBA on November 13 at the Sheraton. These photographs are truly collector's items and, given their high value, we would love your help in notifying your customers, colleagues and mailing list that the photographs will be on view at GSBA's Art Preview, Friday, November 5, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Studio of Scott Aitken on 1605 Boylston Avenue, #310, Capitol Hill.

Bids may be placed on the photographs on November 5 and will continue to be accepted either silently, or in person, at the TASTE of GSBA Auction, Come Fly with Us, on November 13 at the Sheraton.

To place a bid in person at the TASTE, a ticket may be purchased online at or by calling (206)-363-9188.

The TASTE of GSBA is our annual fundraiser for the GSBA Scholarship Fund. The Fund gives out over $135k each year to support the undergraduate education of LGBT and Allied students in Washington State. The TASTE is the event at which GSBA showcases restaurants and caterers, holds a silent and live auction, a sit-down dinner with three celebrity chefs and includes entertainment by the 5th Avenue Theatre, which this year will be performing the music of Guys and Dolls.

If you would like more information about these pieces or about the TASTE of GSBA, please call the office at (206) 363-9188.
