About the event

Our Gala Dinner & Auction will be held in the Temple Ballroom of the Historic Landmark Theater. We begin the evening with a silent auction of baskets and smaller items generously donated by local businesses and community members. Attendees will enjoy a delicious plated dinner from The Pacific Grill, Tacoma’s most award-winning restaurant, while they bid in a live auction for big ticket items ranging from get-away trips to some locally sourced gifts and activities. The event is creatively themed after the James Bond movie franchise. We expect about 200 local business leaders and partners to attend. If you have purchased tickets, your bid package will be ready at check-in.

Thank you, Sponsors!
