As the sun set on the waterfront of Olympia, the beach themed festivities of SandBlast Gala began. This tropical escape drew 600 people for a night full of dancing, dining and bidding on sea and land. Anthony’s Homeport, Fish Tale Ales, and Wagner’s Bakery provided delicious food. Guests danced the night away on the Port Plaza to the music of the Beatniks. This event kicked off the Hands on Children’s Museum’s Sand in the City® weekend, which annually raises over $100,000 for the museum’s Free and Reduced Admission programs. The SandBlast Gala was a beach vacation without leaving the city!
