One of the most frequent questions we get asked when we request feedback from longtime readers and loyal supporters living on the west side of Lake Washington is, When are you going to hold a fundraising event in Seattle so I can drop by and show my support for NPI without having to fight rush hour traffic?
Well, this morning, I’m pleased to announce that we have finalized details for our first-ever FallFest, to be held Thursday, September 8th at Newmark Tower in Seattle (at Pike and Second) from 5:30 PM — 7:30 PM.
Think of FallFest as the autumn version of our Spring Fundraising Gala, except smaller and without all of the formalities.
So it’ll be like house party meets happy hour — only better.
There won’t be a speaking program, but NPI will provide a brief post-Labor Day update on what’s going on, particularly in regards to this year’s crop of ballot measures.We are not selling tickets at a fixed price, either… a ticket can be had for a donation of $20 or more. (Folks who RSVP in advance will receive a special gift as a thank-you from us for pledging to attend).
And, like, our gala, there will be great company, music, tasty refreshments, and Washington Progressive Blogroll t‑shirts for sale.
We are still hammering out details for FallFest, but for now, please mark this event on your calendar, especially if you live on the west side of Lake Washington. And stay tuned for additional announcements about this event.
We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you there!
