WHERE: University Village

WHAT: Gather up your crew and prepare to eat and shop your way through the U District during the 11th annual Shop and Dine to Make a Difference.

Here’s the deal: Snag a Cure Card online for $30, then pop over to the U District to save 20 percent at over 60 participating stores and for the first time…dining specials.

We’re talking Aritzia, Madewell, Fran’s Chocolates, Gene Juarez, and whatever falls between. And some of that fantastic Beecher's mac and cheese at Liam's. All proceeds from the Cure Cards go straight to women’s cancer research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, so go ahead and stop for a specialty beer pick-me-up at Eureka!

WHEN: Friday March 21 through Sunday March 23. Buy tickets online in advance at or at U Village’s Center Court on the weekend of the event.
