WITS Back-to-School Luncheon

Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Thank you so much to everyone that attended our WITS Back-to-School Luncheon! As WITS parent Tammy Watson told us, “Each child, each voice that needs to be heard, is depending on someone to make that difference.” Together, we came together to make a lasting difference in the lives of so many young people, raising over $122,000 to send talented WITS Writers back to school to inspire and engage thousands of students this year—writers and students like Gary Lilley, Hao-Ran, Joelle, Joe, and Azura, who all shared their incredible poetry with us at the luncheon. Thank you for believing in the power of creative expression and helping bring WITS to over 6,000 students all across the Puget Sound region. We truly could not do this work without you.
