You can do just that if you’re the high bidder on a very special item at the Northern Lights Auktion (auction), held by the Nordic Heritage Museum as part of their annual fundraiser. The Nordic Heritage Museum’s largest and most festive fundraising event is just around the corner on September 21, 2008! Join the fun at the elegant Grand Hyatt Hotel Ballroom in downtown Seattle for an evening of enjoyable Nordic festivities.
The opportunity to bid and win such a unique and appealing item is made possible by none other then Captain Sig Hansen of the F/V Northwestern who donated this prize to the Nordic Heritage Museum. And it’s really not an ‘item’ at all, it’s more of a package! One lucky bidder will win a trip for two to Dutch Harbor and they’ll get to do all of this:
This once in a lifetime experience will include a short sightseeing trip around Dutch Harbor and the Island aboard the Northwestern. Later that evening, enjoy dinner with the crew at the Grand Aleutian Hotel’s Chart Room restaurant. In addition, here’s your chance to join the guys for drinks, meet the locals and perhaps some of the other fishermen from the show! This auction item also includes round-trip airfare for two from Seattle and two nights hotel at the Grand Aleutian in Dutch Harbor. (Details)
If you’re interested in attending, or if you’re not in the Seattle area but would love to bid on this exciting ‘deal’ please check out the Nordic Heritage Museum website for forms to fill out!
