“Volunteer board service is a vital component of a nonprofit, and we want board members to know we appreciate their dedication to improving their community through the nonprofits they are passionate about” said Beth Stipe, executive director. “The Board Celebration Dinners honors their service to community, and it’s a fun, inspiring night that reminds us all how important our nonprofit sector is to a great quality of life.”

The evening includes a presentation by special guest, Peter Drury, Vice President for Mission Advancement of the Make a Wish Foundation (Alaska & Washington) and Adjunct Professor in Seattle University’s Master of Nonprofit Leadership Program. Peter has extensive experience working with charities, nonprofits, and community foundations. He will inspire the evening with the impact of storytelling to engage our communities in supporting charitable causes.
