2020 Evening of Hope Gala Benefiting StolenYouth

The Seattle Hotel Association created the Evening of Hope Gala in 1996 to showcase the organization’s effort to make a difference for people in our community. Since 1997 proceeds from this event have benefited Lifelong, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Puget Sound Affiliate, Plymouth Housing Group, The Pike Place Market Foundation, the Seattle Police Foundation, and Mary’s Place. The Evening of Hope Gala has raised well over 10.29 million dollars for these deserving local charities and the Seattle Hotel Association is proud to continue our service to the community.

All proceeds from the Evening of Hope Gala benefit our selected charity and through the volunteer effort of the Seattle Hotel Association members and designated charity organizations, the event has grown to be one of the most successful Gala’s in Seattle’s history.

Charitable Activities

The Seattle Hotel Association and its member hotels actively support local and national community and charitable organizations in a variety of ways. Cash and in-kind donations by hotels to auctions, raffles, and other events exceed a million dollars on an annual basis.
