NPI’s 2011 Spring Fundraising Gala is only one week away… and you’re invited!
As of this evening, our 2011 Spring Fundraising Gala — which will take place at the Community Center at Mercer View — is just one week away.
It’s shaping up to be one of the best events we’ve ever put together, and we hope to see many NPI supporters there.
The speaking lineup consists of Bob Ferguson (our Master of Ceremonies), respected litigator Timothy Ford, yours truly, State Representative Reuven Carlyle, Dr. Scott Macklin of the University of Washington, former City Councilmember Peter Steinbrueck, and U.S. Representative Jay Inslee.
Refreshments will be available from our dinner buffet, and drinks (beer and wine) available from our bar. Music will be provided by Don Mock, and there will be books for sale, courtesy of our very own Steve Zemke and Third Planet Books.
If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, there’s no time like the present:
Can’t make the event? You can still make a donation!
NPI needs your help today to continue organizing and mobilizing for change.
Unlike many other organizations and unlike campaigns, we sink most of the dollars we receive directly into infrastructure to support our movement. NPI is not for-profit. We are the local progressive movement’s Swiss Army knife. We are here to empower fellow activists, to help our allies think long-term, to develop and refine ideas for a better future, and to reframe the debate.
The media, research, and outreach work that we do requires a significant amount of digital infrastructure — for instance, newsgathering equipment and computer servers. When you contribute to NPI, you’re helping us build this infrastructure.
The more infrastructure we have, the more effective we can be, and the more time we can spend on offense as opposed to defense.
We can’t do what we do by ourselves… your support makes what we do possible. We want to give you an opportunity to see in person how we’re stretching your dollars, meet other supporters, and hear from inspirational speakers, while enjoying refreshments and great music from local artists. That’s what our Spring Fundraising Gala is all about. We hope you’ll join us on April 28th.
