Don’t Miss Dozer Day this Weekend!

Round up the family and take in the ever-popular Dozer Day this weekend at the Washington State Fair Events Center! Dozer Day is like going to a fair, only the rides are real heavy construction equipment. Kids hop in the driver’s seat and actually drive dozers, excavators and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side. Not only is it a dream-come-true for kids (and fun for the whole family), the event also benefits NW Children’s Foundation and other charities!

Oh, What a Night!

REACH, NW Children’s Foundation’s Gala & Auction on April 27, was a magnificent success. Our guests’ generosity produced incredible results: We raised more than $780,000! This paves the way for us to distribute $1M in life-changing grants this year. The delicious food from Chef John Howie, John Curley’s colorful banter, and the energetic bidding were outstanding. Our most heartfelt thanks goes to the generous attendees who opened their hearts to change the lives of children and families. You are reaching for a better future – thank you!
