Tonight, with NPI’s 2015 Spring Fundraising Gala now just six weeks away, we are thrilled to announce that we have a fantastic Master of Ceremonies lined up to run this year’s speaking program: Kirkland City Councilmember Shelley Kloba.
Shelley is one of the Eastside’s most principled and hardworking elected officials. She was appointed by her colleagues to the Kirkland City Council to fill a vacancy in March of 2013. The voters subsequently retained her the following November, and she is up for reelection to the Council this year. She has a long history of involvement in the PTA, volunteers as an EvergreenHealth community advisor, and is currently a trustee for the Lake Washington Schools Foundation.
Shelley is also a longtime supporter of NPI; she participated in NPI’s very first Spring Fundraising Gala in May of 2008. We’re delighted to have her as our Master of Ceremonies this year. She’ll be sharing a stage with U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer, who we announced as our opening speaker last month.
Our seventh gala is shaping up to be a great event. We hope you’ll consider joining us. If you haven’t yet bought your ticket to our 2015 Spring Fundraising Gala yet, we urge you to do so now using one of the buttons below.
