Get Swanky with me for a cause!

One of my favorite nonprofits, Seattle Works is having a fundraising event that will be a blast to attend so I’m putting a table of 10 together.  Swank is a gala fundraiser on Saturday, October 1st.  It features silent and live auctions, games, a dessert dash, drinks, dinner and dancing.  You’ll have a blast, and your contributions will support Seattle Works mission of connecting volunteers, developing emerging leaders and inspiring dialogue.


Seattle Works is a wonderful, 20 year old organization that Team Up partnered with in 2010 and their Gigs4Good event was our best selling benefit to date.  They have a strong and dedicated team and are best known for…

  • Delivering accessible volunteer opportunities that help people get going.
  • Pairing those points of entry with a clear path for increased involvement.
  • Preparing people to join nonprofit boards and public commissions.
  • Hosting fun, informal, non-partisan events that connect people with the candidates and issues on their ballot.
  • Being a valued, trusted and knowledgeable partner to great causes seeking to connect with new audiences.

Their vission is to have a thriving community of actively engaged individuals.

My wife and I will be attending and are looking for 8 people to sit with us on our table (or to inspire you to put your own table of 10 together).  Tickets are $95 each and you’ll need to dress to impress!  Please let me know if you’d like to join our table by contacting me on Facebook or Twitter.  I hope to see you there!
