PRESS RELEASE — Kirkland, WA
Attain Housing hosted its Annual “Wish Upon a Star” Fall Dinner and Auction this past Saturday, September 26, at The Westin Bellevue. The event, presented by Windermere Real Estate, raised over $229,000 to support families as they move from homelessness to stable, productive, and self-sufficient futures.
This year’s event brought together over 300 supporters of Attain Housing for an exciting evening, which included silent and live auctions, a magic show from Matt Herbert, kids’ choir from the Kirkland Music Academy, and much more.
Emcee KOMO 4’s Elisa Jaffe and Auctioneer David Silverman helped to inspire the crowd to generously support the agency’s work. “We are truly blessed by the generosity of our guests. The support of all of our sponsors, especially Windermere Real Estate, and the dedication and commitment of all our volunteers are what made this event such a success,” said Cheri Kilty, Executive Director of Attain Housing.
