Nine kitchens prepped for view in Saturday tour

PORT TOWNSEND — The 20th annual AAUW/UWF Kitchen Tour is Saturday.

This year’s self-guided tour, “Kitchens Bay to Bay,” will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants will explore nine kitchens in the Kala Point, Woodland Hills and Discovery Bay areas of Port Townsend.

Tickets on the day of the tour will be $25 at the Kala Point Hospitality Center, 310 Sailview Drive in Port Townsend.

Tickets are $20 in advance through Quimper Mercantile, The Green Eyeshade, The Kitchen &Bath Studio and What’s Cookin in Port Townsend; the Chimacum Corner Farmstand in Chimacum; Over the Fence in Sequim; and Dana Pointe Interiors in Port Ludlow.

Tickets this year also are available online at

Each kitchen on the tour is unique, said Lynne Stryker, publicity chair for the American Association of University Women-University Women’s Foundation event.

“The kitchens on tour are both new construction and remodels, and reflect recent trends in kitchen design,” she said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to gain contact information for area designers, architects and contractors as well as supporting local community scholarships for young women.”

The hospitality center will feature presentations on kitchen design topics, at no charge on the day of the tour.

They are:

• 10:15 a.m. — “The Ins and Outs of Cabinets.”

• 11:15 a.m. — “How to Update Your Kitchen Without Breaking the Bank.”

Raffle tickets and refreshments will be served all day at the hospitality center.

Through the University Women’s Foundation (UWF), which is AAUW’s philanthropic arm, kitchen tour proceeds fund educational projects and college scholarships in the public schools of East Jefferson County.

Donations can be sent to UWF, P.O. Box 644, Port Townsend, WA 98368. UWF is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
