Pilchuck: Through the Kaleidoscope

During this year's virtual auction, Pilchuck: Through the Kaleidoscope, we were amazed by our community's outpouring of support. Together, we exceeded our goal and raised over $1 Million in support of Pilchuck Glass School!
We wish to thank all of our donors and donating artists for their incredible support! And a huge thank you to our Auction Committee members, Trustees, and Team Pilchuck for carrying out this event.
