The annual gala auction is our most enjoyable and successful fundraiser of the year. This event attracts over 300 of GV’s supporters, parents, teachers and professional leaders who unite with a passion to raise funds in order to extend GV’s opportunities to a broad range of program participants, many of whom do not have the means to access these invaluable opportunities on their own.

Proceeds from the auction will fund program scholarships for U.S. low-income youth, help students in Guatemala purchase cement and cinder blocks to build an additional classroom and acquire trees for reforestation projects.

If you can help, please call Kristin Anderson at (206)322-9448 or email her at

We are also looking for event volunteers!
