2019 Gala & Auction

Join Us!

Join us in continuing this work of choosing people, and choosing Love! It’s a movement with a purpose; to grow compassion in this world, one meal, one blanket, one conversation, one intentional gesture of love at a time!
The evening will feature live music while you browse over 100 unique silent & live auction packages to bid on in support of our work. The featured program includes a delicious dinner and inspiring stories of the lives we’ve touched.  The live auction will offer bidders the chance to win exciting travel experiences, valuable services, unique art by PNW artists, and more!

The best way to be involved is as an Event Sponsor. In becoming a Sponsor you will receive 10 tickets to the event, hosting your own table of friends who also believe that ‘People Matter’ and want to expand this movement of love.
Event sponsorships show philanthropic visibility at our event, on our website, and social media.  Click the ‘Explore Sponsorship’ button to find out more about our Sponsorship Levels.

Contact Lance Orton for more information on sponsorship.
