REGISTRATION (opened on April 5th) AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE - click on RSVP or DONATE blue button. 

Please note that there are several categories for ticket levels - all to support the Society. The $180 level is the cost to the Society to run this in person event. We thank you for attending. This is a Gala Fundraising event. 

You do not have to tip the Givebutter platform - we use this platform to keep our costs down and it is used by many nonprofits. However, you must actively change the tip amount to $0 in order to not be charged. We do ask for your consideration in covering the transaction credit card fees, however. You may also avoid all fees by choosing the pay by check option and sending a check to our office at: 3801 E. Mercer Way, Mercer Island, WA  98040. Even if you are not paying on this platform, you still must register here. Thanks. Any questions can be sent to us at: [email protected]

We cannot wait to welcome you to this wonderful event.

We appreciate you all greatly and thank you for your role in making history happen and come alive.
