Over 200 partygoers gathered on September 28 at the Chihuly Boathouse for the Seattle International Film Festival’s annual benefit, SIP for SIFF. Guests ogled Chihuly’s collections while sipping local wines and beverages featured in the live bartender competition and listened to soulful tracks from KEXP’s DJ Riz while tasting food from some of Seattle’s best restaurants. In the live auction, guests bid on items such as a trip to France and a set visit with Lynn Shelton, who made an appearance at the event. Thanks to the supporters’ generosity, over $120,000 was raised, which will support the annual Seattle International Film Festival, year-round SIFF Cinema programming, and SIFF Education programs. Special thanks to event sponsor, Snoqualmie Tobacco and Liquor.
