A special evening to benefit homeless women and their children in our community will be held this coming Saturday, Nov. 2nd, from 5 – 8:30 p.m. at the Renton Pavilion Event Center.

This event will feature local celebrity “dancers” competing to raise money for local non-profit KentHOPE:

  • Brian Chandler, Outreach Director, Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission
  • Evgeniya Gorbacheva, MD, Medical Director, Auburn Medical Center
  • Zenovia Harris, Kent Chamber of Commerce CEO
  • Jeff Heiss, Owner Jeff Heiss Painting

Even if you can not attend the Gala, you may vote with a donation for your favorite dancer HERE. The dancer with the most donations wins!

Arrive at 5 p.m. to browse marketplace items to purchase for the Day Center, enjoy the photo booth, cash bar and preview the dessert dash display. Dinner will be served, followed by a celebrity dance competition, live auction and raise the paddle to donate at your preferred level. Host a table of eight for $500 and invite your friends. Or purchase single tickets for $100 each.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at several levels–more information HERE.
