2017 PAC Brunch: Imagine the Impact

Brightwater Environmental Education and Community Center
Woodinville, WA

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Doors open at 9:15 a.m.  The program begins at 10 a.m.


One purpose of the PAC is to raise money for the Parent Education Program scholarship fund. Scholarships provide temporary financial support to families who would not otherwise be able to participate in this program. We awarded over $20,000 in scholarships to families in need last year. The PAC Board organizes community events that will aid in our mission to raise money for scholarship funds, community outreach and enrich families on a larger scale.

The 2017 PAC Brunch is a fundraiser and will take place on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Brightwater Environmental Education and Community Center in Woodinville, Washington. The doors of the event will open at 9:15 a.m., with the program beginning promptly at 10:00 a.m. You are invited to purchase a $50 ticket for bites and bubbly, networking and informative speeches by:
