Hi-Yu has promoted the West Seattle Community for over 79 years through summer festivals such as Summerfest, Seafair and other local events. This year we are combining the auction, coronation and White Rose Ceremony into an Annual Gala. The auction raises funds for our scholarship program to help the young women attending colleges. Also, financial support keeps the only community owned float visible in parades like the American Legion Parade, 4th of July Burien Parade and Seafair Torchlight. This year's theme is, Alki Deep - An Undersea Adventure, promoting the beauty and life beneath the waters of Puget Sound.
