Evening of Hope



Show your support of our mission by donating items that can be auctioned at the Gala.   Priceless experiences or items that cannot be purchased tend to be the most attractive, but any auction-able products and services are appreciated. Please consider donating  an item, service, or experience and feel free to be creative in showing your support.  If you’d like to donate an item or experience, please click here.


There are many ways to support the event and StolenYouth. Help us with outreach to procure products, services, and priceless experiences for the auction, where 100% of the auction proceeds will benefit StolenYouth.  If you are able to support procurement, please click here.   

Volunteer at the Auction and Gala (We need help with planning, registration, runners, greeters, set up, break down, etc.).  Interested? Click here.

About The Seattle Hotel Association’s Evening of Hope

The Seattle Hotel Association created the Evening of Hope Gala in 1996 to showcase the organization’s effort to make a difference for people in our community. In the past decades, proceeds from this event have benefited Lifelong, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Puget Sound Affiliate, Plymouth Housing Group, The Pike Place Market Foundation, the Seattle Police Foundation and Mary's Place. The Evening of Hope Gala has raised more than $9.85 million for these deserving local charities and the Seattle Hotel Association is proud to continue our service to the community. All proceeds from the Evening of Hope Gala benefit our selected charity. Through the volunteer effort of the Seattle Hotel Association members and designated charity organizations, the event has grown to be one of the most successful galas in Seattle's history.
