PAHS silent auction, talent show benefit tonight

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles High School Leadership students will host “Cross My Heart Benefit Talent Show and Silent Auction” tonight with a silent auction at 6 and a talent show at 7.

Admission will be $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The event had been scheduled for Feb. 15 but was canceled because of a snowstorm.

A wide range of talent from around the Olympic Peninsula will be featured.

This year’s event will benefit Linda Barnett, a school district bus driver and mail carrier for more than 23 years.

Barnett was diagnosed in August 2018 with esophageal cancer and is currently in treatment.

The theme “I Cross My Heart” was developed with Barnett, her son (a PAHS senior) and PAHS Leadership students.

Auditions for the talent show were held in January and were open to community members of all ages, as well as PASD students.

For information, contact Patsene Dashiell, communications and community relations coordinator, at [email protected] schools.org or 360-565-3703.
