2017 GALA & AUCTION
NW Children’s Fund’s 32nd Annual Gala & Auction, Spark!

Thank you for lighting the way to a brighter future!

Full of energy and heart, Spark!, the NW Children’s Fund Gala & Auction on April 29, brought together a host of people eager to improve the lives of at-risk children and families. The evening’s lively bidding and heartfelt giving raised $700,000 – our most ever! – in support of our collective effort to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect. With more than 500 generous guests in attendance, it was certainly a night to remember; a night dedicated to making a difference for vulnerable kids in our community.

Our Heartfelt Thanks Goes to …

Chef John Howie for the incredible dinner and emcee Brian Geer and auctioneer John Curley for keeping us laughing and raising our paddles all evening long. Thank you to the amazing dancers from the School of Spectrum Dance Theatre, who opened the evening with a sparkling dance performance. We are also very grateful to our battalion of volunteers, who made the event run smoothly, and our generous Gala Sponsors.

A special thank you goes to our Fund-a-Need speaker, Jessica Kei Nagamatsu. Her spirit shined as she shared her personal story with our guests, and how help from NWCF partner agencies FareStart, YouthCare, Teen Feed and ROOTS Young Adult Shelter changed her life. In turn, Gala guests opened their hearts, giving a record-breaking $318,000 to support agencies providing life-changing services in our community for at-risk youth and fragile families. 

Here is Jess’s story:

 

It’s Never Too Late to Give

If you weren’t able to join us for the Gala this year, you can still help us support our community’s at-risk kids and vulnerable families. Your donations are always welcome and greatly appreciated.

Save the Date!

The 2018 NW Children’s Fund Gala & Auction is set for Saturday, April 28, and will once again take place at the stunning Fremont Studios. Mark your calendars!
