Tacoma is awesome. Diverse, artsy and informed, there seems a symbiotic relationship between the livelihood of the people and the livelihood of the city.
Take for example The Get Involved Gala, aka The GIG, a fundraiser for the United Way of Pierce County that takes place Saturday, November 10 at the prestigious Tacoma Art Museum.
Fancy attire is requested at the gala that hosted 300 young civil-minded partiers last year and earned $14,000.
This year, GIG expects 500+ attendees and will provide food, fun, games, drinking, dancing, and photo booth and will provide guests exclusive access to the Andy Warhol Flowers exhibit premiering that weekend.
Tomorrow night, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., join Weekly Volcano staff at the Melting Pot with Project U and pre-purchase your tickets in person. Melting Pot is providing some delectable appetizers and happy hour drink prices. Project:U will raffle off some special prizes and the Weekly Volcano may even comp you a ticket to the GIG. Who knows? You might even score a date to the GIG while you're there.
Can't make it to the launch party? Purchase your tickets online now at www.getinvolvedgala.org., before prices go up October 16.
