For 109 years Tacoma Community House has empowered our immigrant and refugee community members to embrace the American promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Join Tacoma Community House on April 12th, 2019 for our 109th annual luncheon to help us celebrate Empowering Lives, Creating Leaders and Bridging Communities.

Registration: This is a free community event and all guests are welcome. Please register yourself and all guests at our EventBrite page, including:

  • Full name and email address of all attendees
  • Any dietary restrictions and/or preferences for a vegan meal
  • Any other accommodations

Those who register by Friday, March 29th will receive an email reminder two weeks prior to the event (however, registration is still open up until the day before the event). You do not need to print out your registration to get in the door.


Parking: The GTCC is currently constructing a hotel so parking options may be altered or limited. Please visit the Convention Center’s website to explore parking spots, plan ahead, and allow yourself extra time to find parking in a nearby lot or garage if necessary.

      • Parking underneath the Convention Center is still open, but you must enter from the Commerce Street ramp, not 17th Street.
  • Please have $6.00 cash (exact change) on-hand if you choose a paid parking option. Credit Cards are also accepted.

Table Captain Check-In: 11:00 am to 11:30 am

Check-In & Program Times: Check-in will begin at 11:30 am on the day of the luncheon. Please allow yourself 20-30 minutes to find a place to park and reach the check-in tables. Our program will run from 12-1pm.


In the spirit of supporting TCH programs, we would be grateful if you would consider making a gift to TCH either online or the day of the luncheon. The generosity of supporters like YOU is what allows TCH to continue providing services to 3,250 individuals from 115 countries each year!

  • We will have donation envelopes the day of the luncheon if you wish to make a gift then.


Feel free to contact TCH’s Development team at (253) 383-3951, or Amanda Meyer at amayer@tacomacommunityhouse.org if you have questions, concerns, or require special accommodations during the event.
