The "Friends of Cleveland" group is holding their annual Red & White auction. This year, the auction will be held on Thursday, May 12th, at the Museum of Flight, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. They are raising funds towards next year’s First Robotics fees for the School of Engineering and Design, and toward the purchase of video equipment for student projects in the School of Life Sciences. Those who wish to support could do so by purchasing a ticket to attend, then bidding on items. It is also possible to donate without attending. The last day to reserve a seat is Monday, May 9.
Contact Catherine Brown firstname.lastname@example.org or Dick Lee email@example.com, 252-0476 at Cleveland for more info.

The Franklin High School Arts Festival is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., May 14 at the school, 3013 S. Mt. Baker Blvd., and will feature student art, ceramics, woodcrafts, lion dancers, fashion shows and the steel drum and jazz bands.
This year, Francis Roque, a Franklin alum and ceramicist, has worked with FHS art students to create approximately 100 mugs called Quaker Cups, which we will sell at the festival for just $15 each. And, Principal Dr. Jennifer Wiley's steel drum band will perform, along with the lion dancers, jazz band and other groups. Habesha, a group of East African students, will present a fashion show.
The National Honor Society will sell heirloom tomato plants (the best deal in town!), and other student clubs will have games, rummage sales, sno cones and so on. Details are at http://www.franklinartsfestival.wordpress.com/.
