Art Auction Fundraiser
Friday, December 14 / 5:00-9:00pm
All Pilgrims - 500 Broadway e, Seattle, wa 98102
Through this event, the Lavender Rights Project aims to combat oppressive funding structures by raising funds from our communities for queer and trans legal services, supporting local queer and trans artists, and building relationships with local organizations, businesses, and community members.
Silent auction art pieces available at the event:
Doorways / Stairs
The main door leading to the event hall, which is on the corner of 10th Ave E and E Republican St, has 8 steps outside, followed by an additional 4 steps inside. The double doors measure a total of 62.5” wide.
The accessible entrance on Broadway has a ramp and is 71” wide with double doors. Folks going through this entrance will go through two more doors, each 39.5” wide, before entering the main hall. Volunteers will be on site to direct folks to the entrances.
There is an all-gender ADA-accessible restroom on the main level (with urinals), and an additional all-gender restroom upstairs (without urinals).
While we cannot guarantee a fragrance-free event, we ask attendees not to wear perfumes or other scents that may impact folks with fragrance sensitivities.
Parking / Public transportation
Parking options include paid lots in the immediate area, as well as the Broadway Market parking garage below the QFC supermarket (entrance on E. Harrison Street). Limited street parking is available.
The event space is 3 blocks from the Capitol Hill Link Station, 4 blocks from the Streetcar, and 1-4 blocks from the following bus lines serving Capitol Hill: 8, 10, 43, 49, 60.
Thank you to our sponsors!
