Thank you for joining us at the 1st Annual Virtual SGS Luncheon!
Due to the public health crisis around COVID-19 and Gov. Inslee’s recent ban on all large gatherings, we shifted our Annual Luncheon from a get-together at the Westin to an online watch-together of pre-recorded content. From the comfort and safety of our own homes, the entire SGS community tuned in to share in celebration of the students and mission that we love and support. Together we laughed, teared up, and raised over $114,000 for tuition assistance! Thank you to everyone who donated, everyone who tuned in to enjoy our student-centered content, and to everyone who continues to be an integral part of the extended SGS family through these difficult times of social disconnect.
Our fundraiser has ended, but you can still enjoy the videos below! We look forward to next year when we can come together and celebrate in person (SGS’ 20th Anniversary!), but until then we are grateful in the knowledge that this community’s strength and resiliency will weather will the toughest of times. We’re all in this together!
