2013 Golden Hearts Luncheon
Thank you, Northwest Center Golden Hearts Luncheon corporate partners, new and longtime supporters, community leaders, and everyone who joined us on September 24th to celebrate the power of inclusion. Together, luncheon guests and sponsors raised more than $200,000 to sustain and enhance Northwest Center’s continuum of innovative and inclusive services for people with developmental disabilities; providing hope and opportunity to the thousand people Northwest Center serves each year.
A special thanks to Monica Holloway for not only sharing her personal story with event guests, but also her belief in and support of Northwest Center’s mission by including in her remarks:
The whole world deserves civil rights. Every child deserves a place to go to school. Every person deserves a vocation, something to be proud of. To deny children, teens and adults the right to be constructive, empowered and important contributors to society is to not value them as people, and can any of us live with that? I don’t want to live with that.
We are honored to consider Monica a new fan of Northwest Center! “Thanks to this incredible organization for sharing with us what is truly possible for our families and our kids”, Monica posted on Facebook.
Northwest Center also presented the William O. Ellison Award to Safeway for their support of inclusive workplaces.
