Buy holiday gifts for the boater in your life ….and help build CWB’s new education center at the same time

December 3, 2013

The West Marine on Westlake in Seattle is planning to donate 5% of Profits on Saturday December 7th to help build the new CWB Ed Center.

It’s not often you can do your holiday shopping AND do good for your favorite Maritime Museum.  But this Saturday, December 7th, is that day.

The folks at the West Marine on Westlake Avenue in Seattle will be pulling out all the stop to help you find the perfect holiday gifts for the boaters on your list because they know part of the proceeds will go to help The Center for Wooden Boats build a new education center in Lake Union Park.

West Marine’s Holiday Community Day Program at the Westlake Store starts at 9am.   And all day, on everything we buy, CWB gets a cut of the action.

 What: West Marine Holiday Community Day for CWB
When: Saturday December 7th, 2013
                  9:00am to 08:00pm
                  (9:00am to 12:00pm Youth Cleat Box Building)
Where:  West Marine
                  1275 Westlake Ave. North
                  Seattle, WA 98109

West Marine associates are always happy to help customers with their Christmas lists, but it is even more fun when some of the sales goes to a great cause such as building the new Education Center at CWB. Seattle’s maritime museum expects to break ground on the new Wagner Education Center early in 2014.

And this being about CWB, as you would expect….there’s a little woodworking for kids involved.  If you come between 9am and Noon, your kids will have the opportunity to make their own wooden Cleat Box so they can practice that tricky cleat hitch. Before you know it, the kids will handle all the lines when you dock your boat better than you do.   And at the end of the day, we’ll be just the much closer to breaking ground on the new Wagner Education Center at CWB.

So put it on your calendar. Invite your friends. Get your Christmas list ready for the boater in your life. Saturday, December 7th at the West Marine on Westlake in Seattle. Come for the holiday cheer, the deal, and to help build the new building at The Center for Wooden boats in Seattle.


The Education Center is the largest part of a $9.5 million dollar capital fundraising campaign that is also improving the organization’s existing floating facilities at the south end of Lake Union, will bring badly needed utility upgrades to CWB’s Workshop & Warehouse at the North end of the lake and will strengthen the museum’s financial stability.
