'Tis the season of giving!  An Art Institute of Seattle student-produced holiday event filled with food, drinks, music, art and an awesome silent auction you don't want to miss benefiting Inspire Youth Project. Inspire Youth Project provides consistency and long-term nurturing that a child needs in order to grow and contribute to our society. Who Inspire Youth Project supports our children graduating from therapeutic day care who typically experience a painful loss of emotional support, stability, and sense of community when entering the public school system as well as youth affected by HIV/AIDS whom often become alienated and suffer many isolating transitions. 

The Inspire Youth Project has given a chance for the community to help sponsor families by providing food, toys, mentorship and advocacy. Our goal for the Holiday Soirée is to raise awareness to our community and younger generation about Inspire Youth Project and learn how to help provide these children with food, toys, support and mentorship to succeed in their academics and overall a better life.

Our holiday soirée has an awesome silent auction with the items donated from local donors including:
•      2 Rare Wine Baskets
•      Wine Basket donated by Inspire Youth Project
•      Starbucks Gift Basket
•      Weekend Getaway Vacation to Sunriver, Oregon
•      An Art Piece by Char Haugen
•      Photography Work by AIS Student Aaryn Smith
•      Photography Work by AIS Student Calysta Sarah
•      Ray’s Boathouse Restaurant Gift card
•      Nordstrom Gift Card
•      And more!

All proceeds from silent auction and door fees from this event will go to Inspire Youth Project.

Please join us for this wonderful cause and bring joy and happiness for these children this holiday season!
