Thanks to all who attended FallFest!

On behalf of the team at NPI, I’d like to extend my thanks to every­body who came to our first-ever FallFest tonight in down­town Seat­tle. We were very hap­py with how the event went, and we hope that those of you who came had a good time.

As a result of your gen­eros­i­ty, we are now in a stronger posi­tion finan­cial­ly, and that’s def­i­nite­ly a good thing. We’ll con­tin­ue to invest your dol­lars towards meet­ing long-term infra­struc­ture needs. In my remarks tonight, I men­tioned that NPI spends no mon­ey on adver­tis­ing or consultants.

There’s a rea­son for that. We are a strat­e­gy cen­ter work­ing to raise Amer­i­ca’s qual­i­ty of life… not anoth­er cam­paign. What we do is very dif­fer­ent from most of the oth­er enti­ties that are out there ask­ing for money.

We are espe­cial­ly grate­ful to those of you who have loy­al­ly sup­port­ed us for many years. With­out you, we would­n’t be here, and we could­n’t car­ry on this work.

If you weren’t able to make it to FallFest, but would still like to make a dona­tion, you can con­ve­nient­ly and secure­ly do so online at this page.

Again, thanks to all who attend­ed FallFest 2011. We plan on doing this event again in 2012 oppo­site our 2011 Spring Fundrais­ing Gala, which will be held around the time of the year’s oth­er equinox!
