2018 Foundation Gala – Sold Out

Located at the beautiful Chihuly Garden & Glasshouse, this year’s Foundation Gala will feature live music, a banquet dinner, plus silent and live auctions to benefit charities. The event will take place Thursday, 18 October 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

If you’ve never been to Chihuly Garden & Glasshouse, you won’t want to miss this opportunity. The combination of exquisite glass designs, their dazzling array of colors, and lush plant life have made the venue a top tourist attraction in Seattle.

Worldwide ERC® Foundatio nChair-Elect Robert Giese SCRP, GMS noted on the Gala’s festivities and charity:

Worldwide ERC®Foundation’s Fall Gala event is a fantastic opportunity to Inspire, Learn and Give…and have a great time! Hosted at one of Seattle’s most desirable locations, Chihuly Garden & Glass, attendees can experience the sites and beauty of the galleries and 40-foot tall Glasshouse. Gala attendees will enjoy learning about our selected charity, Family Promise, focusing on empowering families from homelessness to sustainable independence and assisting over 93,000 people in 2017. After a delicious meal, both a live and silent auction will take place for an exciting evening – and a chance to outbid your friends on that special item you can’t live without!  

Please contact Anne Bartoloni for table sales. For sponsorships, contact 2018 Sponsorship Chair Johnny Haines, SCRP, SGMS-T for more information about the different sponsorship levels.
