Reservations being taken for Captain Joseph House Foundation meal, auction in Port Angeles on April 23

SEQUIM — Reservations are being accepted for the fourth annual Captain Joseph House Foundation dinner and auction, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 23.

Reservations must be made by Sunday, April 17, for the benefit for the nonprofit, which will be from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at SunLand Golf & Country Club, 109 Hilltop Drive. Seating for dinner will begin at 6 p.m.

The cost is $80, or $70 for active and retired military.

A $1,000 corporate table secures advertising in the program and seating for eight.

Proceeds will go to the Captain Joseph House Foundation, which is creating a first-in-the-nation refuge for grieving families of fallen service members. Such families are known as Gold Star families.

Betsy Reed Schultz is converting the former Tudor Inn Bed and Breakfast at 1108 S. Oak St. in Port Angeles into the refuge in memory of her son, Capt. Joseph Schultz, who was killed May 29, 2011, in Afghanistan.

Remodeling the home began in June 2013. Organizers hope to see it ready for use late next year.

The benefit evening will feature a choice of steak and Gorgonzola, Cornish hen with blueberry, stuffed chard or shrimp-filled sole.

Entrees include mixed greens with candied walnuts and dried cranberries, vegetable bundle, twice-baked potato, bread and butter, coffee or tea and red, white and blue sorbet for dessert.

A no-host bar, raffle and silent auction will open at 4:30 p.m.

Guests are welcomed with a complimentary glass of wine.
