Save the Date: NPI's 2010 Spring Fundraising Gala will be June 9th, 2010

We have some exciting news to share this morning.

For the past few weeks, the team at NPI has been working to plan our second Spring Fundraising Gala, continuing a tradition we began two years ago, which allowed us to not only stay in business but significantly strengthen our resources.

Today, we're pleased to announce that our 2010 gala will be held on Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, at the Community Center at Mercer View (on Mercer Island).

Speakers will include King County Executive Dow Constantine, Democratic congressional nominee Suzan DelBene (running in the 8th District), State Representative Hans Dunshee, and Seattle Port Commissioner Gael Tarleton.

We expect to announce additional special guests in the coming weeks.

The event will begin at 6:30 PM (when registration opens) and be over by 9 PM.

We're not selling tickets just yet, but we will be very soon. The individual rate will be $45, and the household rate $75. Students will be welcome for just $20. Tickets will be available for purchase from NPI's website.

As at the first gala, a delicious buffet will be served, and yours truly will be giving a short presentation about NPI's work.

So please mark June 9th, 2010 on your calendars as the date of NPI's second Spring Fundraising Gala. We're very much looking forward to putting this event together, and we hope that we'll have the honor of seeing you there!
