The numbers are in and we are overjoyed to let you know that we raised over $260,000 at our Spring Benefit Luncheon!
We are so thankful to all 850+ of you who joined us at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall on May 5th, thankful to our generous sponsors and partners who provided funding and food, thankful to our courageous women and families who inspired us with their Real Life stories of Real Help and Real Hope, thankful to our talented performers who entertained and lifted our spirits, thankful to our wonderful emcees, Lori Matsukawa and Mayfield Vashti-Roberts, who kept us on track, and thankful to our hard-working staff, board, committee members and volunteers who make Mary’s Place go! We could not do any of it without all of you – your support and generosity keep our families safe, warm, and alive!
On the same day, so many of you gave generously to Mary’s Place though the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG campaign – thank you!
AND, we collected over 500 blankets that we will distribute to area shelters to Blanket our Community in Love!
YOU are the Real Love in our Community!
