On November 4, Lawyers Helping Hungry Children, a nonprofit dedicated to ending childhood hunger in Washington, held joint fundraisers in Seattle and Tacoma.
The King County Chapter of LHHC held its 23rd annual fundraiser, once again at the Grand Hyatt in Seattle. The luncheon featured a keynote address by Hunger Warrior Award winner Rep. Jim McDermott, who graciously accepted the award and made a special effort to join us on Election Day.
Also honored at the lunch was former Seattle Mariner Raul Ibanez, who although detained in Kansas City due to the World Series, accepted the Hunger Warrior Award and generously donated several items to the live auction.
The Hawthorne Elementary School Choir entertained the biggest crowd to date, and attendees had the opportunity to bid on the items generously donated by Ibanez, as well as items donated by Molly Moon, with all proceeds benefitting hungry children in King County and beyond.
