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.

Then-State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive (now Super­in­ten­dent of Pub­lic Instruc­tion) Chris Reyk­dal speaks at NPI’s 2014 Spring Fundrais­ing Gala (Pho­to: Lin­coln Potter/Samaya LLC)

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:

North­west Pro­gres­sive Insti­tute
PO Box 264
Red­mond, WA 98073–0264

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

Thanks to every­one who has already pur­chased a tick­et and invest­ed in expand­ing NPI’s insight­ful research and imag­i­na­tive advo­ca­cy!
