Pearl believes in giving back to the community it serves, and we’ve enjoyed raising funds for several great area causes over the past year.
In December, on Pearl’s one year anniversary, we partnered up with Eastside Domestic Violence Program to collect toys for the many children in the organization’s homeless shelters and programs. The event easily raised over $1,000 in toys.
Over the holiday season, we also participated in the Adopt-A-Family program organized by the Overlake Service League. With the help of our guests, we fulfilled the wish list of a family of seven whose electricity had been disconnected after the family’s income had dramatically decreased. We set up a Christmas tree at Pearl, and each ornament represented a gift. Guests picked an ornament and returned to Pearl with an unwrapped gift.
This past fall, we participated in the St. Joseph’s School Auction by donating a dinner event at Pearl in conjunction with The Woodside/Braseth gallery. The auction was a successful evening of wine, hors d’oeuvres, and contemporary art. We have children who attend St. Joseph’s School, so the cause is close to us.
This weekend, Pearl is hosting The Eleanor Henry Reed Guild’s annual benefit supporting Seattle Children’s Hospital Uncompensated Care Fund. We look forward to providing cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and desserts for this important event.
It’s been a privilege to give back. Watch for our photos from the Eleanor Henry Reed Guild annual benefit in an upcoming posting.
