Description

Thank you for your consideration in supporting the Seattle Hotel Association's “Evening of Hope” Gala Dinner & Auction. Not only is this a marvelous event for the hotel community but it is also an event in which your donations will help to support our local community. Over the years, the Hotel Association has donated $8.5 million to different nonprofit organizations, improving the lives of thousands of people living and working in Seattle.

The 22nd Annual “Evening of Hope” is February 1, 2020 benefiting StolenYouth.

Every day children as young as 11 years old are bought and sold for sex in our community. StolenYouth’s mission is to end child sex trafficking in Seattle and across Washington state.  Its vision is to expand the community’s awareness and ability to appropriately intervene on behalf of children and youth forced into the sex trade and to work together for sustainable and system wide change in our community. Since its founding in 2012, StolenYouth has been extremely successful in achieving its mission with a strategy of providing grants to a carefully-selected coalition of community-based prevention and service providers. These local groups offer technical assistance, outreach, visibility and other support to the cause of ending child sex trafficking.
