   Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Sam Adkins will emcee a gala dinner auction to help finance Woodinville High School Theatre Company's production of Oklahoma at the Edinburgh (Scotland) Fringe Festival this summer.

   The fundraising event, to be held Saturday, April 10, includes silent and live auctions and dinner at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Bothell, beginning at 5:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Scotland trip. Advance-only tickets, at $50 per person, can be ordered by calling 425-881-5124.

   The WHS Theatre Company will represent the Northwest at the Fringe Festival in August. The entire cost of the trip for the 60 students, chaperones, and musicians is being raised privately by the drama group.

   Tax-deductible contributions to offset expenses, payable to the non-profit "Soaring to Scotland Boosters," can be sent to P.O. Box 2442, Woodinville, WA 98072.
