Our charitable efforts for this year are focused on YWCA's Holiday Adopt-A-Family program. We have been assigned two families consisting of a single parent and two kids. Our task is to purchase two gifts in the $50 range for each child and a $50 (minimum) gift card for the family to help them buy groceries (holiday dinner) or household items. The WA RIMS Chapter will be collecting funds to assist the families.

Location: Art Marble, 731 Westlake Ave North, Seattle
Time: 4:00 - 9:00
Registration is $50.
