Want to save on tickets to NPI’s 2017 spring gala? Act now to get the early-bird rate

Readers, we are just forty-eight days away from our 2017 Spring Fundraising Gala on Mercer Island (Saturday, April 29th at 6 PM), and we’re looking forward to sharing details of our speaking program with you.

Before we announce who our speakers are, though, I want you to know that you still have an opportunity to buy a ticket to the gala at our early-bird discount.

We’re holding early-bird ticket sales open until tomorrow (Monday, March 13th) at 8 PM Pacific Time. After that point, regular rates will be in effect.

Purchase now to save 17%-25% off the regular price!

Our gala is the biggest event that we put on every year, and it is by far the best opportunity to meet the NPI team in person and learn about our work. Our goal is for all of our guests to be able to spend a memorable evening with family, friends, and fellow activists, and support NPI’s vital work at the same time.

In recent years, we’ve been honored to have leaders like U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell, Attorney General Bob Ferguson, U.S. Representatives Adam Smith, Denny Heck, Derek Kilmer, and Suzan DelBene, Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal, and Sound Transit CEO Joni Earl as part of our speaking program.

There are three ticket rates:

  • Individual ($75, temporarily discounted to $60; admits one person.)
  • Household ($120, temporarily discounted to $100; admits an entire immediate family.)
  • Living Lightly ($25, for students and activists on limited incomes.)

To buy a ticket at any of these rates, just go to the gala page.

Your payment will be securely processed by Authorize.Net, which is a division of Visa, Inc. Your credit card details will be protected by best available encryption.

If you’d rather not use a credit card, simply mail a check for $60, $100, or $25 to:

Put “Gala” on the memo line. We’ll send you a confirmation.
