The Seattle Hotel Association's Evening of Hope Gala
| April 2014
The Seattle Hotel Association put on the Ritz during the annual Evening of Hope Gala on February 8 at the glamorous Fairmont Olympic Hotel. Attendees were dressed to the nines in Roaring ’20s fashion, from beaded dresses to pinstripe suits and jaunty fedoras. A claw-foot bathtub completed a gin martini display, and old-fashioned black-and-white mug shots were snapped of guests, whose bidder ID numbers doubled as booking numbers. A total of $495,000 was raised for the Seattle Police Foundation—more than $185,000 of which was generated from “raise the paddle” efforts.
