Celebrating Native Communities Through the Cultural Tradition of Giving

What an incredible time it was at our 20th Anniversary Gala, we raise our hands to the Tulalip Tribes for hosting us! Also, a tremendous thank you to our community, sponsors, friends and family who were able to attend or celebrate from afar. We are so appreciative of the support we have received over the past 20 years. Thanks to your help we were able to raise over $260,000 surpassing our gala goal!

If you attended the 20th Anniversary Gala, we would love for you to fill out a short survey.
