Save the Date: NPI's annual Spring Fundraising Gala will be April 28th, 2011

I'm excited to announce this afternoon that we have finalized a date for our Spring Fundraising Gala, which is unquestionably the best opportunity we offer to learn about what we do and support our work. This year's event will be taking place Thursday, April 28th, 2011, at the Community Center at Mercer View.

And yes, that's the same place where last year's event was held.

We figured it made sense to hold it there again because so many folks told us they liked the venue after the conclusion of the 2010 gala. It does have many advantages: it's halfway between Seattle and the Eastside, it's within easy walking distance of transit, and it's a beautiful facility with a well-equipped kitchen.

In the weeks to come, we'll be unveiling more information about the event, including our speaking lineup.

Tickets are, however, going on sale right now at a special early-bird rate; you can buy an individual or household ticket by clicking one of the buttons below. Prices will be going up when additional details are made public, so if you'd like to save a bit of money while securing your seat, now is the time to act.

If you've never been to our gala in the past, picture an eclectic evening with tasty food, jazz music, great company, and speakers like Major General Paul Eaton (Ret)., Darcy Burner, Chip Hanauer, Jon Soltz, Suzan DelBene, Dow Constantine, Hans Dunshee, and John de Graaf. That's what our event is like. It's your chance to meet our staff and board and become better acquainted with other supporters of NPI.

Students who want to volunteer to help put on the event can get in the door free. If you're interested in volunteering, please get in touch with us.

We look forward to seeing you on April 28th!
