Join us for 7th Annual Gala
You are cordially invited to the 7th Annual One Days Wages Gala! Join us for a fun and meaningful evening that will include stories of impact, great food, goodies, good company, and opportunities to make a difference in the world!
We are so excited to celebrate our 7th anniversary with our amazing friends and supporters! With your help, this past year we enabled over 20 sustainable development projects, impacting thousands of people with clean water, education, disaster relief and much more! Through these projects, together we are making a difference at the community level. The Gala will be a time to share stories of hope and impact throughout this past year, along with our vision for the future of this work together.
Why give to the gala?
Throughout the year 100% of donations go directly to projects around the world, so we raise our operation funds separately. The Gala is the main way that we do this.
While we operate as an incredibly lean organization, in order for us to continue this important work and impact, we need your support so we can continue sustainable growth.
The Gala will be a very special evening, complete with inspiring stories of impact from our founder, Eugene Cho, along with exciting news about the direction of our work. Enjoy the always amazing appetizers & desserts by Savor Seattle, a choice selection of drinks, and of course, our famous silent and live auction, featuring items from the best northwest businesses and beyond!
Our Annual Gala is a free event, but you still must reserve your ticket(s) in order to attend! This year we are challenging each guest to give a suggested donation of $250, and these gifts will be matched by our generous sponsors!
