Fundraising Gala 2018

Gala 2018


Our Fundraising Gala was a success! Thank you to our sponsors, auction donors, members and attendees for your generosity!


On November 30th, 2018, AFSeattle held its annual Fundraising Gala Dinner at Seattle’s iconic Rainier Club and organized a Silent Auction & Raise the Paddle to raise funds for its educational and operational upgrading needs. We are delighted by the generous support of all who made it possible to exceed our fundraising goals.


Thanks to our Auction Donors, our attendees were able to win great prizes and fun activities from local and international vendors supporting l’Alliance Française de Seattle. The funds raised at the auction will be used to upgrade our classroom computers, to update our French library with contemporary literature and films, to provide original class material for youth classes, and to strengthen our operational infrastructure.

Our school succeeds thanks to the commitment of our teachers, and with the generous support of our community of donors and sponsors, we can continue providing strong and original French courses, tailored for all levels and ages, maintaining a major French language exam center in the PNW, and proposing a variety of affordable cultural opportunities such as concerts, lectures, screenings, workshops, and much more.

Thank you for your friendship and support!
