I am elated to announce that we raised a total of $60,000 at the Lake Union Rotary Happy Hour for Good dedicated to YouthCare that I sponsored last week!
These Happy Hours are always a very collaborative evening and I could not have pulled it off without the help of my Happy Hour Heroes or members of the Rotary Club that I count on for set up and take down, desserts and bar tending. Fremont Brewery donated a keg to us this year. Mark Ryan Winery via McCarthy Schiering and Molly’s Creations gave us a generous discounts. The wonderful Shed Boys provided us music again this year and had us in a generous and giving mood. I have been passionate about supporting YouthCare for decades. Youth Homelessness is an issue we can actually solve. Providing hope and help their first day of homelessness is the answer in my book. It is much less costly to redirect and help then vs adult homelessness. It just makes sense. I was tremendously blessed to have so many people step up this year in their giving. My colleagues at Windermere Midtown both from our Foundation funds and individually were humbling. We had several anonymous donors who provided the match pool this year. I was a bit overcome at the final tally. Thank you to everyone!
