Tickets for the United Way of Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties Annual Gala on Saturday, January 25th at the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino are on sale at the United Way office. Tickets can be obtained by calling the United Way office at 532-6260.

The first United Way Gala was founded by Rich Hartman’s Five Star Dealerships who was soon joined by Jodesha Broadcasting. Thanks to Founding Sponsors Rich Hartman’s Five Star Dealerships and Jodesha Broadcasting along with Host Sponsor, Quinault Beach Resort & Casino, we are able to continue this community-supported event. This fun filled evening features a scrumptious menu starting with appetizers followed by a Romaine Heart Cobb Salad.  The entrée features Roasted Eye of Prime Rib with Veal Demi Glaze accompanied with a Grilled Quinault Salmon and Shrimp Brochette and Rosemary Potato Confit, finished with a lavish Champagne Bavarian with a Strawberry Gelee.  There is also a silent and live auction, including stunning artwork donated by local artists, hotel packages and a Brad Paisley autographed guitar.

Drawing Tickets are available for $25 each to win one of 3 prizes – 250 gallons of gas (!) , an AMP refrigerator cooler or a Keurig.  People do not have to be present at the Gala to win the drawing.

“This great evening has been the party of the year, a night to have fun, relax and best of all, show how we all continue to support our community… just as we have for the last 15 years at this gala!” says Nora LeBlanc, Executive Director. Since the Gala and Auction began, the community has raised over $700,000 for people in Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties. Every dollar is raised locally and stays local to reduce hunger, ensure that all people are safe and that children will succeed and thrive.  United Way supports 22 programs that serve local people striving for a better life. United Way has been mobilizing and uniting our community caring with our local resources for over 50 years.

The annual Gala and Auction is the primary and biggest fundraising event for the United Way during the campaign all proceeds stay in our community.

Dinner tickets are available for $75 or sponsor a table for 8 for $1000.  To reserve your tickets today, sponsor a table or buy drawing tickets call the United Way at 360.532.6260 or email uwgh@techline.com.
