Three local community centers — namely, the West Central Community Center, the Northeast Youth Center and the Southwest (formerly Peaceful Valley) Community Center — are holding their third annual joint fundraiser for local at-risk youth programs. It’s called Building Dreams: Bright Futures for Our Kids.
The dinner and auction event will be held at the Spokane Convention Center starting at 6pm on Saturday, May 9. There are some amazing silent auction items lined up as well as a couple of larger custom-built structures — like this plush log cabin doghouse that’s currently being raffled off (tickets are only $1 and are available in River Park Square) — that will go to the highest bidder.
The programs these centers provide are of immense importance to many families in Emerson-Garfield (and all over Spokane, for that matter), because they give kids a safe, supportive place where they can make friends, engage in healthy activities and learn from positive role models.
Individual tickets for the event are $45, and you can reserve a table of ten for $450. Click here to buy tickets online.
