Reservations are being accepted now for the Sophia Way Annual Journey Benefit Luncheon at the Red Lion Hotel Bellevue at 11211 Main Street, on Thursday, September 26th from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m..
The Sophia Way works to help end homelessness for adult women in King County by providing shelter, life skills training, social services and supportive permanent housing, offering a path from homelessness to stable independent living. The clients the organization serves in Bellevue are homeless with no other options for support and often facing the challenges of domestic violence, mental illness or physical disability. More information about The Sophia Way can be found on the organization’s website.
This year’s theme for the benefit luncheon is “community is empowerment”. The luncheon emcee will be Jonathan Gannon, Licensed Relationship Manager for Key Bank. Speaker Judy Lightfoot, Ph.D., is formerly a teacher and professor and currently an award-winning writer. Her many articles appear in Crosscut and publications including the Seattle Times. She often writes about how the region’s people face challenges in a time of economic stress and diminished expectations.
Reservations may be made online or by calling Tami at 425 463-6285, ext. 113. The luncheon is complimentary with a suggestion donation to the Bellevue non-profit organization of $150.
