The theater's Fourth Annual Gems of the Jewel Box Gala Fundraiser was held on Saturday, March 9, 2013, at the Sons of Norway in Poulsbo, WA..

DURING THE LIVE AUCTION, guests “raised the paddle” for new renovations to the lobby and to support the Jewel Box Performance Academy’s youth theater program. Here are some of the auction items:

  • Airplane flight around Puget Sound for two with lunch provided
  • Gourmet dinner for 6 including wine
  • Float and fly fishing trip on the Yakima River with experienced guide and fisherman
  • Afternoon sailing outing on Puget Sound and barbecue
  • One and one-half hour dance lessons for 3 couples with dinner afterward: fox trot, rumba, waltz, swing, cha cha, or tango
  • One free pizza each month for a year with unlimited toppings

YOUR SUPPORT SUSTAINS THE JEWEL BOX, our community’s treasure. The auction is the primary event that supplements our ticket sales; your support is vital and makes our musicals, dramas, play readings, improv, and youth theater camps possible. Proceeds help the Jewel Box Theatre continue to provide quality shows at an affordable price, creating more gems for you and others.

THE JEWEL BOX BOARD OF DIRECTORS is very grateful for the generosity of our key event sponsors: Puget Sound Energy; North Kitsap Auto Rebuild; Thrivent Financial; Acupuncture & Wellness Center; Kingston Crossing Wellness; Moran's Landscaping.
