New venue, big dreams: save the date for ODW’s 8th Annual Gala
Thanks to you, the ODW movement has never looked this good. So it’s time to celebrate like never before!
We’re taking our Annual Gala up a notch by heading down to Sodo Park, in the heart of Seattle’s Sodo district, for an evening to remember. The historic SoDo Park is an incredible venue featuring industrial charm, chic modern accents, and most importantly: room to party!
We have so much to tell you about the impact you are making and our vision for the future. The Gala will be an opportunity to support our work at its very core, wine and dine in style, and connect with others like you who are passionate about global justice work. You’ll also get the chance to win some of the most sought after Northwest brands and adventures through our auction.
Why THIS Gala matters
We have big dreams this year. Through the Gala, you’ll be venturing on a journey with us over the next year to not just impact people world-wide who are experiencing poverty, but help us scale up our impact with integrity, transparency, and passion.
Your generosity and engagement is both inspiring, and also crucial to our work. When you support the Gala you are fueling our operations behind the scenes. Throughout the year 100% of donations go directly to our work around the world, so we raise our operating costs separately. The Gala is the main way for donors like you to invest in our movement’s ability to grow well and sustainably.
So this year let’s celebrate the amazing work we’ve done together, and vision forward what we can do next to promote global justice and empowerment.
Whether you are a seasoned supporter, or just starting to learn about our work, we invite you to experience the core of ODW at the 8th Annual One Day’s Wages Gala.
