All In For Kids | Lake Washington Schools Foundation

Dear Friend,

Just one more week!

On April 29 at 7:00 PM, we'll welcome you to Be the Bridge, our online benefit event.

Please join us for an evening of laughter, inspiration, and entertainment while we celebrate fifteen years of service to LWSF families. We're delighted to welcome student jazz band the Royals as our musical guests, along with comedian and actor Justin Rupple and broadcast meteorologist Shannon O'Donnell as our night's hosts. We'll hear about the past year's challenges and victories from our program leaders and volunteers, and chart a path into a future that finds all children and families supported.

Please RSVP today! Be the Bridge is a benefit event, and we hope you'll make a contribution, but tickets are free and unlimited.

With your help, we can take what we have learned this year and build on it, continuing to not only treat the symptoms of inequity and injustice, but to unfold a future in which all of our children have an equal opportunity to succeed.

Together, we can Be the Bridge.
