Save the Date: NPI’s 2012 Spring Fundraising Gala will be April 12th, 2012

We are pleased to announce this after­noon that we have final­ized a date for our 2012 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 12th, 2012, at the Mer­cer Island Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­ter — the same place we’ve held it for the last two years.

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.

Ear­ly-Bird: $45.00 $60

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 Peter Stein­brueck, Jay Inslee, Bob Fer­gu­son, 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.
