Coronavirus Update March 11, 2020:

The health and well-being of the Book-It’s patrons, staff, and volunteers is our top priority.

Governor Inslee has stated that further measures may be instituted to proactively slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and Book-It wants to ensure we are following best practices regarding community safety.

As a result, Book-It has made the difficult decision to reschedule our 30th Anniversary Gala: Big Wig Blowout on Saturday, March 21 to Saturday, June 13thIf you purchased a ticket for March 21, you will be contacted by email, and your ticket will be automatically forwarded to our June 13th event.

Book-It is particularly grateful for all the support we have received from you, our community, in making the decision to reschedule our Gala. Thank you. If you have questions about our event, please email Director of Development Jeannine Clarke, at jeanninec@book-it.org
