You gave more than $130,000 as donors and sponsors and countless hours as event volunteers! Thanks to the families of our volunteers for your patience. We wish to thank all the wonderfully optimistic, hardworking volunteers who gave so generously of their creative energy and time!
Together, we accomplished our shared goals to have fun and to give generously, including support of our teachers through professional training and curriculum collaboration, and for our kids through Fund-a-Dream for Financial Aid. Our BFF event planning group worked diligently to keep expenses low while providing a great party experience for our guests at the Neptune Theatre. We appreciated the performers who entertained us, sharing their talents as jugglers, acrobats and musicians!

Thank you for leading by example and demonstrating your commitment to billings--to our kids and the caring adults on campus--both teachers and school administrators. Your 'voluntary action for the common good' defines philanthropy, and our event volunteers and Board of Trustees lead by example!
THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to our event sponsors:
The Bedside Trust, Schreiber, Starline and Lane Architects, Mithun, Interface Technologies Northwest, Talon Enterprise, and in-kind service gifts from Herrick Design and Pacific Office Automation, as well as Gianfranco D'Aniello (Giorgia 2013) for the imported Italian wine selections and Brent Norton (Gus 2013) for the Elliott Bay Brewing Company Beer!
