Join us for our largest event of the year! Look forward to an inspiring evening with UBB board members, staff, student alumni, and our entire family of community supporters. The evening promises to be a fun and celebratory occasion with Fundraising Auctioneer, Laura Michalek, powering the silent and live auctions, raffle, and paddle raise. Catered dinner by Herban Feast, with beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages, and an amazing Dessert Dash, with all desserts donated by local bakeries in the Greater Seattle area. We are also so excited to have Oloth Insyxiengmay and Marvin Chapman be this year's alumni student speakers, who will be sharing how UBB has impacted their lives. 

All proceeds from our gala will go directly to UBB's programs — your financial support will help to cover tuition, fees, textbooks, and supplies for our students.
