Dance benefit

The Seattle Dance Project will be among the groups helping to raise money for Pacific Chamber Ballet in Lynnwood.

Performers with this modern dance company will join Sony Masterworks and Steinway Artist Andrew T. Miller, trumpet player Rudy Harper and dancer Lauren Matthew during a benefit soiree at 8 p.m. Saturday at Pacific Chamber Ballet, 6925 216th St. SW in Lynnwood.

Tickets are $15, or two for $25, and are available at www.brown papertickets.com or by calling 800-838-3006.

In addition to dance and music performances, wine and desserts will be served.

Because of a rising cost in rent and declining enrollment, Pacific Chamber Ballet, which has been in operation since 1983, is in danger of closing its doors if funds are not raised to help the studio continue operations past October.

Grant could clean up marina: The city of Marysville is looking for public comment about a federal grant that could help clean up the Geddes Marina property on the Ebey waterfront.

An open house is scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday to discuss the city’s application for a $200,000 Environmental Protection Agency grant that would be used to clean the contaminated ground at the 5-acre site the city bought in July. The meeting will be at the Marysville Public Library, 6120 Grove St.

Long-term plans in the city’s 2009 Downtown Master Plan would see the Ebey waterfront redeveloped with trails, apartments or condominiums and some commercial development.

Written comments from those who are unable to attend the meeting can be submitted until 5 p.m. Thursday.
