On Friday, April 10, 2015, Tacoma Community House celebrated 105 years of making positive change in the lives of refugees, immigrants, and low income families in the south Puget Sound. With well over 500 people in attendance at our annual luncheon, it was an amazing success! Dedicated community members took time to share lunch with us and learn about lives being transformed through TCH’s four core programs of education, employment, immigration, and advocacy.
The support of devoted community members helped raise over $56,000 during the lunch, and our luncheon sponsors contributed an additional $20,000, bringing our grand total to $76,000! Gifts made during the luncheon will ensure that Tacoma Community House’s life changing programs will continue to have a positive impact upon the 3,600 individuals and family members each year.
Special thanks to: Tacoma’s Mayor, Marilyn Strickland; KING 5 News Anchor, Lori Matsukawa; program participant, Reysis Alonso; and long-time Read2Me volunteer, Peter Darling.
