SAL’s Words Matter 2017 Benefit Gala & Literary Auction
MAR 23, 2017

Be a champion of the literary arts at Seattle Arts & Lectures’ 2017 Words Matter Benefit Gala & Auction, Thursday, March 23, at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle.

Words Matter is SAL’s most important fundraising event of the year, raising more than $250,000 to engage people of all backgrounds and incomes, from kindergarten through adulthood, in the power of words to change lives.

The evening will include an elegant multi-course dinner with wine, a silent auction reception featuring books inscribed by luminaries, and a live auction filled with unexpected literary adventures, all against the spectacular backdrop of the glittering Seattle waterfront.

Funds raised at Words Matter will support SAL’s Writers in the School Program and help bring the best writers and thinkers of our time to Seattle while maintaining affordable tickets and extending access to low-income and underserved populations.

Tickets are $175 each/$1,750 for a table of 10. Buy your tickets here
