The Glitter Gala, held on November 6, 2015, “In the City,” was a shining success!
Grace, Bashawn and Hammed shared their stories and how Goodwill supported and helped them work through their challenges, in pursuit of their dreams. Goodwill President and CEO Daryl Campbell also announced plans to open a new Job Training Center in Kent that will allow us to add a fourth youth program.
In addition to supporting our students, guests enjoyed two runway shows: the Glitter Fashion Show and the Goodwill Design Challenge. Check out the fashion show page for the results. Both shows exemplified reusing and repurposing materials, and of course, there was plenty of sparkle!
Over $425,000 was raised to support Goodwill’s Youth Programs, which are centered on college and work readiness for students aged 15 – 24. Seattle Goodwill’s Job Training and Education programs in total last year, served more than 8,700 people at 10 locations all over North Puget Sound.
