It's that time of the year again! The Potlatch Fund Gala takes place on November 19th and is a great event to network and socialize, and to support an important organization.
As many of you know, I am a Potlatch Fund board member and this is one of my favorite yearly events. Our mission is "To inspire and build upon the
Native tradition of giving and to expand philanthropy within Tribal Nations and Native Communities in the Northwest." This event is our major
fundraiser and brings together people from many different tribes, organizations, and communities.
Once again I will be coordinating a UW table. You can find more information on ticket prices (individual tickets are $125) and the evenings agenda (which includes a Native Art silent auction!) in the message below or in the attached flyer. Please contact me if you are planning on attending so that I can add your name to the UW table.
Tleko, and I look forward to seeing you at the Gala!
