We are excited to be the recipients of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust grant. This three year grant will allow us to hire a development coordinator and purchase the Classy Platform. With a new teammate and CRM, we will be able to maintain a donor database in one location, while providing a user friendly experience for donations and event registration. All of this will help us better serve Sarcoma patients and families in the Pacific Northwest.

We are gearing up this month for our Knight Life Gala. Excited to be hosting in-person this spectacular event. This year, we changed it up and are taking a 3-hour cruise, (yes, I sing that also each time) on Lake Union. We hope that if you are planning on attending you get your tickets soon, the deadline is June 21st or if tickets sell out before. We have 3, fun live auction items - a weekend stay in a renovated 1905 railway caboose for 2, a weekend stay for up to 12 people on Hood Canal, and a multiple date night experience package. We hope to see you there! Limited seating, come join us!

Thank you volunteers for making our events and programs run so smoothly! As we launch into Volunteer Appreciation month everyone here says thank you! We have realized that just last month was 6 months until the Dragonslayer Walks, where we ask so much of many of you. So again, thanks! Earlier this year the board and staff worked diligently to establish and define committees to support the work of the organization. We are searching for volunteers who want to participate in the next part of the future of the NW Sarcoma Foundation. We decided on four committees, and we are looking for some great people to get involved.
