We had a great turnout for the White Center Promise Celebration this year. Over 1,000 people came out on the sunny Friday of Labor Day weekend to eat, dance, get free backpacks and talk with us about WCP.
Also in attendance and providing key remarks were Highline School District Superintendent Dr. Susan Enfield and King County Executive Dow Constantine.
There were huge performances from the well-known EriAm Sisters, Au-Lac Vovinam Lion Dance Team and Seattle Kokon Taiko Drummers.
In addition, fifteen community organization hosted tables as vendors to get information out about educational opportunities, health related information, jobs and neighborhood improvement. Twenty volunteers helping during the day of the event from start to finish. These volunteers helped with set-up, serving food, registration, check-in, book bag giveaways, food prep, directing guest and tear down at the end of the event.
There were also generous donations of 200 book bags from United Health Care, 50 book bags and 100 pairs of shoes from White Center Heights Elementary School, and gift cards from both Target and QFC.
Thank you to everyone who helped this event be so successful!
