This coming Wednesday evening, the Northwest Progressive Institute will be holding a fundraising gala. As many of you know, NPI has been a ceaseless foe of professional initiative hawker (and confessed liar) Tim Eyman. Since 2003, NPI has championed numerous progressive causes from tax reform to support of progressive candidates in the Northwest. Over the last five years, NPI has played a huge role in organizing and informing the progressive NW blogosphere, and bringing together progressive activists and their representatives in Washington and Olympia.
They deserve your support. But, beyond that, these events are just plain enjoyable. That isn’t just talk…I attended the previous fundraiser, and had a great time. This years speakers are John de Graaf, Suzan DelBene, Dow Constantine, Rep. Han Dunshee, and Seattle Port Commissioner Gael Tarleton.
The gala will start at 6:30 the Wednesday (June 9th) at the Community Center at Mercer View, 8236 SE 24th Street, Mercer Island. The cost is $45 for individuals and $75 for households. And there is special price ($20) for students and low income families.
You can find additional information on the event and purchase tickets at the NPI web site.
