Boiler Room Booster Club

has $940 in prize monies


Membership tickets are $20 each, and will be entered into a series of membership drawings. Drawings for a $60 prize will be held at The Boiler Room every Thursday in October and November. A Grand Prize Winner of a $400 cash prize will be chosen from all tickets at The Boiler Room Annual Auction on December 6. Members may join throughout the drawing period, so chances of winning depend on the number of tickets sold at the time of each drawing. Every ticket is entered into every drawing and it is allowable to purchase more than one ticket. All monies raised will support The Boiler Room directly. Membership is for a six month period, and Booster Club Members will receive special recognition in The Boiler Room Zine. If you are interested in becoming a Boiler Room Booster or in more information, please contact Booster Club President Thomas Overman at 360-774-0311 .

Tickets can be purchase by donating online here in denominations of $20.

“The Boiler Room has been many things to many people. A coffeehouse, an art gallery, a private business, a nonprofit teen center, a cause, a scapegoat. But to me it has been a salvation – a place to be, and belong. Home. I’ve worked with some of the finest human beings I’ve met to preserve a common goal of home for ourselves and anyone else who needed it, to resolve the question of where do I belong. So many people ask it, and we can never afford to let ignorance settle such questions.”

- Jake Kelly, former BR Manager
