And now... Announcing the keynote speaker for our 2010 Spring Fundraising Gala

Last week, after months of planning, we revealed that our second Spring Fundraising Gala is going to be held this June 9th at the Community Center at Mercer View on Mercer Island, featuring King County Executive Dow Constantine, Democratic congressional hopeful Suzan DelBene, State Representative Hans Dunshee, and Seattle Port Commissioner Gael Tarleton.

This afternoon, we're thrilled to announce that our gala's keynote speaker will be John de Graaf, one of our region's most eloquent and passionate progressive speakers. John is the national coordinator for Take Back Your Time, which is fighting to liberate Americans from the stress and anxiety caused by being overworked. He is the coauthor of several bestselling books and an independent producer of television documentaries for KCTS9; more than a dozen of the programs he has worked on have aired nationally in primetime on PBS.

We anticipate announcing still more special guests in the days ahead, but we strongly encourage you to secure your tickets for the gala now... space at this event will be limited and we can't guarantee last-minute availability.

There are two rates available: Individual ($45) and Household ($75).

The latter is easily the better value for any family. The household rate was rather popular at our first gala, and we're happy to be able to offer it again.

We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you on June 9th!
