ACRS 40th Gala Volunteers

Event Description:
Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) will be having their 40th Gala soon, and they are seeking volunteers to help with the event, set for Saturday, September 28th, at the Seattle Westin

As you may know, ACRS is now in its 40th year! This is an incredible milestone for the agency. This year, they hope to raise $200,000 and are expecting over 500 guests to attend. The event will include both a silent and live auction, dessert auction, and a Ruby Raffle! All proceeds will support ACRS’ twelve programs, which serve over 27,000 clients each year through comprehensive behavioral and social services to the Asian Pacific American community.
