Individual admission may be purchased for $75/person. Tables are $600 for a table of eight and $750 for table of ten. We encourage all guests to bring friends who have never attended Viking Night. The evening will be sure to impress even the most experienced of event-goers. Reserve your spot today the Viking Night Registration Page.
Handling the auctioneering duties will be Seattle’s own John Curley. John’s dynamic non-stop energy captivates the audience. It’s a venue for a natural showman, and Curley’s 20 years of live theatre, TV, and radio experience puts him in a class all by himself.
