Mira Hoke's Bio
I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and community activists, and in my own way, am carrying on with that tradition. As business owners and managers, we have a great deal at stake in developing a business-friendly community that embraces a balanced, thoughtful approach to future trade and industry in our area.
Black Diamond has recently lagged behind Maple Valley in development and encouraging business growth, but those days are changing and we are on the cusp of tremendous opportunity. As an employee of a large developer, I am both personally and professionally passionate in bringing talent, skills and opportunity to our doorsteps and would like to offer my help to deliver this.
My position as Community Relations for YarrowBay in Black Diamond has brought numerous challenges and great rewards. Among my present activities, I’ll include: Initiation and management of the Black Diamond Farmers Market, now in the third year; member of Kiwanis, PTA, Black Diamond Labor Days, The Historical Society, Black Diamond Miner’s Day and a fledgling new Artist’s group in Black Diamond. I’m part of a ministry in my church that builds scenes and settings to help communicate current lessons of the day. I work with numerous civic groups in Black Diamond and do my best to introduce opportunities to build the community through mutual cooperation.

Rise & Shine is an annual fundraiser bringing together artists, community members, collectors, donors, and friends to celebrate MVCAC's mission to promote and appreciate the arts in our community and schools.
Silent and Live Auctions, Holiday Shopping, Make-A-Gift, Breakfast, AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTS! We can't think of a better way to wake up on a crisp December Saturday morning. Can you?
Start things off with coffee and perusing the Silent Auction from 8:30 to 9:00 am. While fueling for the day with a scrumptious breakfast from 9:00 to 10:00, we'll have a small Live Auction. The Silent Auction will continue after the Breakfast, during which time you'll also be able to shop this year's Bazaar for original art and holiday gifts - or stop by one of our local vendors and artists who are offering an on-site Make-A-Gift opportunity for around $10.00 each.
Tickets are only $25.00 each and children 12 and under eat FREE! All proceeds (except for the Make-A-Gift) benefit Maple Valley Creative Arts Council. TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE!
