The 2012 ODW Gala: What an Amazing Celebration!
On November 30, 2012, One Day's Wages hosted our Third Annual Gala at McCaw Hall in Seattle, Washington and what a beautiful and amazing evening of celebration and generosity it was!
We want to again express our sincere gratitude to our guests, volunteers, Gala sponsors, and to all our supporters - near and far - for your love, support, and partnership.
One Day's Wages is truly about
"you, me, us, and them...all working together for a more compassionate, beautiful, and just world."
Here are some highlights:
- Over 350+ people joined us for this celebration.
- Live music from DJ Rowzroyce and 2-Sol-Ful.
- We interviewed Wylie who biked 3000 miles from Savannah, Georgia to Los Angeles, California to raise funds and awareness for the ODW Water Fund.
- We shared stories of groups climbing mountains, and individuals running triathlons, donating their weddings for ODW, and numerous other creative causes.
- We shared stories of our partnerships and collaborations with NGOs and organizations all around the world and the impact we're making together.
- Through sponsorship, ticket sales, and donations, we were able to raise $74,598.36. Thank You!
