Please RSVP by April 16!
Preparations are underway for AKCHOâ€™s 28th Annual Awards celebration, so dust off your fancy duds and make plans to join us for what promises to be a night of fun, surprises, appreciation, and camaraderie.
MOHAI will be hosting this highly anticipated event for the last time at its current location in the McCurdy Park building. And, for the fourth consecutive year, this wonderful AKCHO event will be sponsored by 4Culture.
Those of you who attend will not be disappointed! The Museum has generously opened its main floor exhibit galleries during the reception. Explore Essential Seattle, Salmon Stakes, Hall of Icons and Eye Candy, and the newest exhibit Now and Then, showcasing the â€œrepeatâ€ photography of old friend Paul Dorpat and his collaborators, Jean Sherrard and Berangere Lomont.
The reception will feature an array of delicious hors d’oeuvres and lots of choices to drink. Reception begins at 5:30 PM to give guests lots of time to visit, catch up with old friends and make new ones. The Awards event begins at 7 PM downstairs in the comfortable McEachern Auditorium. (There is no elevator, so if you have trouble navigating the stairs, you may need to go back outside and down to the Auditorium entrance.) Then it will be time to dim the lights, cue the mic, and prepare to be inspired!
As you can imagine, this yearâ€™s award nominees represent some of the finest projects, organizations, and individuals that illuminate and showcase the heritage community of King County. Make plans now to attend and celebrate our achievements.
RSVP by April 16 to email@example.com.Â Be sure to include your name, organization, and the number in your party. If we get everyoneâ€™s names, we may be able to make nametags which are a great help to remember the names of friends and colleagues whom we have not seen for a year. See you there!
