From The Seattle Times

World-renowned Seattle jazz vocalist Ernestine Anderson is in imminent danger of losing her home in the Central District.

The house will go into foreclosure and be auctioned July 11 unless $45,000 is paid by June 30.

An 11th-hour campaign has been mounted by community leaders Carver and Carmen Gayton to save the Anderson home. The house has been in the family since 1946.

On Sunday, the Gaytons sent an e-mail appeal to 350 people, requesting donations for Anderson.

The letter explained that an account had been set up at Bank of America in Washington state under “The Ernestine Anderson Fund.”
