Spend a lazy Saturday evening cruising the Puget Sound with HERE Seattle.
Summer is in full bloom and with the long, sunny and beautiful days Seattle has been having there is no better time to do something special for our citizens as well as kick off our newest fundraising effort for a marvelous organization working with young adults in a major way. Come out Saturday, August 27 to start your weekend relaxing with good peeps who do some amazing things. We have rented an Argosy boat for you and your homie/lover/friend to enjoy a fun evening all for a good cause. There will be a cash bar and plenty of good food.
Space is VERY limited and we have early bird pricing ($30/person) for the next 2 weeks, so why not make the commitment now for less than you will be able to the week of the event? The week of the event pricing will go up to $50/person.
Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Washington Asian Pacific Islander Community Services. Learn more about WAPI below:
HERE Seattle is passionate about making an impact within our community in 2016 and when we learned about Washington Asian Pacific Islander Community Services' (WAPI - "wah-pee") mission to provide and advocate for culturally competent and age-appropriate prevention and substance abuse treatment services for Asian Pacific Islander Youth and all Youth of Color we knew we wanted to help somehow. Though WAPI provides counseling services and creative programming to youth of all backgrounds, currently they serve a mostly Black and Asian Pacific Islander population.
One program of WAPI's we are particularly ecstatic about helping them build is the Level Up Music Program that teaches students the fundamentals of digital audio recording from signal flow to audio software to song arrangement. The 20-week program provides a safe, non-clinical creative outlet in addition to technical audio production skills.
We want to help WAPI reach their fundraising goals so the proceeds from ticket sales for this event will be donated to helping WAPI raise funds specifically for laptops and MIDI controllers. If you'd like to learn more about WAPI, visit http://wapiseattle.org/
