Seattle Met's 5th Annual GeneroCity
Allow us this one humble brag about our fifth annual GeneroCity party that we're throwing this Wednesday from 6 to 10 at The Sanctuary. Celebrate some of the Seattle-based organizations that make this city one of the most giving and innovative places to live. Eat, drink, pose for a pic or two in the photo booth, and enjoy a night of meeting new people and honoring over 40 nonprofits, many of which were featured in "Light a Fire" for Seattle Met's June issue. You'll even be able to find out more about volunteering opportunities. Tickets are $25 ($40 for two) and all the proceeds go to local nonprofits.
