ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

by Lindsay Peyton
The 12th annual Harvest Dinner and Auction is slated for 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15 – and organizers are working to make it the best fundraiser yet.

“It’s an awesome community event,” development director Ian Smithgall said. “We get people from all over White Center who come out for it. It’s great to have such a long-standing event - -and have people fill the tables in support.”

Tickets are $99 – and the event is open to the public. There location has changed this year to the Seattle Design Center, 5701 6th Ave S.

“The impact from this event is so direct,” Smithgall said. “It’s a huge part of our budget. This goes straight to our mission – to put food directly on the plates of our hungry neighbors.”

The White Center Food Bank got its start in the mid-1970s as an emergency response program to help families in need in White Center and Highline – and became incorporated as a nonprofit in 1982.

Last year, the organization served 61,083 individuals.
