Save the Date: NPI’s next Spring Fundraising Gala will be held on Friday, April 26th, 2019

As longtime supporters know, each year, in the middle of spring, we hold a major event to thank our supporters and raise money to support our work. It takes the combined strength of our board, staff, and contributors to organize, but it’s always been an extremely successful event, and we’re confident it will continue to be.

Next year’s gala will be the eleventh gala we’ve held.

Here are the details for your calendar:

NPI’s 2019 Spring Fundraising Gala
Friday, April 26th, 2019
Reception: 5:30 PM | Program: 7 PM
The Renton Community Center
1715 SE Maple Valley Highway
Renton, WA 98057-3900

The gala will be returning to the Renton Community Center in 2019.

Conveniently located right off of Interstate 405 (Exit #4), the Renton Community Center offers a spacious, publicly owned banqueting room with doors that open to a patio overlooking the Cedar River. It’s an ideal venue for our event.

The reception will be at 5:30 PM and the main program will be at 7 PM.

Early-bird tickets for the gala will go on sale starting January 7th and speakers will be announced beginning a few weeks after that, along with further details.

For now, we invite you to save the date on your calendar and plan to join us for our eleventh gala. We have many exciting surprises we’re working on and look forward to sharing a wonderful evening with you next spring.
