fan_dinner_inviteOur 2016 Annual Dinner was on Sunday evening, November 20 at the Renton Pavilion.

We celebrated the accomplishments of the past year, highlighted the diversity of voices in our partnership for the common good, and encouraged each other after a long election season!


The annual dinner is FAN’s primary fundraising effort and we depend on it for almost one-third of our modest budget.  Last year, Rick Steves matched $30,000 that was raised at our dinner, and this year he promised to increase that with a matching gift of $40,000. Thanks to the generous contributions of all our other advocates that night, we were able to reach that match!

In the present political context, FAN’s interfaith, statewide work for the common good is more important than ever.  We were delighted to be joined by so many in our network, and we are so grateful for all the support we received and continue to receive.

Our speakers and awardees for the evening were:
