Save the Date: NPI’s 2011 FallFest will be September 8th in Seattle

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!
