The Skagit/Island Counties Builders Association (SICBA), with Major Sponsor, DeWaard & Bode; the Appliance & Mattress Giants, hosted the 38th Annual SICBA Home & Garden Show at the Skagit County Fairgrounds in Mount Vernon, March 23rd, 24th & 25th.
The show was sold out of vendor spaces, comprised of a total of 140 inside and outside booths and displays that related to just about everything a homeowner might want for any project they might consider and had record attendance. New to the Home & Garden Show this year was the wine, beer & spirits tastings on Friday and Saturday evenings, which attendees enjoyed and will be back next year.
Additionally, there were five unique playhouses that were created, custom-built, and donated to the charity of their choice by SICBA members. Attendees of the Show and the general public had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets from the charities and win one of the four playhouses. Proceeds from the raffle tickets were over $12,000 for five local charities, with the playhouse built by No. 7 Development, for Children of the Valley winning Kid’s Choice and the playhouse built by Triple R Framing & Drywall, for the Children’s Museum of Skagit County, winning People’s Choice. Over $150,000 has been raised in 9 years for Charities in Skagit and Island Counties from this fun project.
