Our Healthy Communities Celebration Dinner Was a Big Success!

Together we raised $259,295!

And that's a big number! Because every dollar raised at our Companis 2017 Healthy Communities Celebration Dinner on Nov. 2nd returns $5.71 in services to our homeless neighbors, those suffering from addiction and mental illness, immigrants & refugees, youth, seniors and LGBT people.

Your participation made this fun and inspiring event a huge success with 505 guests attending. We’re super jazzed as we continue to hear how much our guests enjoyed the evening! It was inspiring to hear Dr. Rayburn Lewis and Sallie Neillie talk about a great idea that became Project Access Northwest. And speakers Washington Supreme Court Justice Mary Yu and Dow Constantine, King County Executive were tremendous, reminding us on how we all can work together on behalf of our most vulnerable neighbors. Thanks to all who came and the support of hosts Anne Symonds & Peggy Graybill and Presenting Sponsor Swedish and Jeff W Smith Real Estate & Windermere Real Estate. And special thanks and hugs to our Emcee Elisa Jaffe of KOMO News, who is so good to us!

Special thanks also to our hosts, Anne Symonds and Peggy Graybill, whose support made it possible to dedicate all funds raised to our program supporting Companis Workers and the life-saving work they do each day among our neighbors.
