TELL ME MORE ABOUT WHAT I WILL DO AT THE EVENT:

Begin the evening with an intimate happy hour bar crawl inside The Foundry. Your entrance ticket = two drinks from among several local beer, wine, and hard liquors available (non-alcoholic drinks too!). Mingle with guests and sanctuary staff, get your photo taken in the Seattle Met photo booth, sample local libations, and see what it takes to run the sanctuary at the Hope, Love, and Home stations while contributing directly to operations and earning a personalized heart to place on the heart board.
