Thanks to Everyone Who Attended Our CommuniTea


Thank you to everyone who attended and / or donated toward our 2017 CommuniTea. We are blown away by the unflinching and incredible support of  the WestSide Baby family. The generosity poured forth and made for an amazingly successful event. Altogether we have raised over $330,000! That will help us keep a lot of children in our community safe, warm and dry.

Some of our highlights included smashing a match challenge for donors giving $347 toward our new “Safe Z’s” project; Welcoming a record number of new Giving Circle members who have agreed to make a three year commitment to our organization; sharing the some incredible tombola prizes, a Golden Ticket winner and the newly designed Babycakes.

If you did attend, we’d love to get your feedback to help us improve. Please take 5 minutes to fill in this survey to guide us for next year’s Tea. 

We work with 114 incredible and dedicated provider partners, without them we wouldn’t be able to get the essential items out to the families who need them. This year’s Tea video celebrated three such providers – Seattle PD, The Kaiser Permanente Teen Pregnancy and Parenting Clinic, and Lutheran Community Services.

Watch the video:

Thanks as well to our wonderful co-chairs, Dow Constantine and Shirley Carlson, our keynote speaker Jessica Bartholow, speaker Beth Farmer from Lutheran Community Services and our wonderful Emcee Ian Lindsay – who successfully caught his plane home!

We are currently working on getting event photographs to you, they should be available later on this week so be sure to check our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds to see when they’re done, there’s a sneak peek below. In the meantime check out the great coverage of the day from the West Seattle Blog.
