The Merry Month of May

Thanks to all our friends and supporters, May was a wonderful month for The Sophia Way.

GiveBIG
The GiveBIG fundraiser early in May, whereby contributions were partially matched by The Seattle Foundation, was a success. The campaign generated over $9,000 to help The Sophia Way serve homeless women on the Eastside. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this great fundraiser for The Sophia Way.

Mother-Daughter luncheon
Unity of Bellevue hosted a Mother-Daughter luncheon, featuring a talk by The Sophia Way board member Karina O'Malley. We understand that many hats were worn and a good time was had by all.

Read the Bellevue Reporter article about the event

Sophia's Place at St. Luke's
Sophia's Place is our project that will double the number of beds we have available to serve homeless women on the Eastside. We're excited to announce that we've completed the permitting process and have been granted all the necessary permits for the projects.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed to this project and especially those who helped guide us through the permitting process.

July events
Summer will be here before you know it (once we get on the other side of typically cold and rainy June). There are several events happening...we hope you will join us at:

  • July 4th: We'll have a booth at the Symetra Bellevue Family Fourth in Bellevue's Downtown Park. The large park gets filled with families and music and fun and is a great place to spend the day (and part of the night to watch the fireworks!). Stop by and say "Hi"!
  • July 10th: Sponsored by Intelius, Summer Outdoor Movies in the Park is another event the entire family can attend, and also happens at Bellevue's Downtown Park. Join us to watch Puss in Boots and raise awareness of homelessness on the Eastside.

Thank you for all you do to support us,.
