Please join us for The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Luncheon on Thursday, April 27 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Seattle. This is an opportunity for the community to see the work The Salvation Army is doing in King County, and raise funds to help our neighbors in need.
Mark Wright, News Anchor at KING 5 TV, will emcee the event and will be joined by special guest speaker, Aidan Lang from the Seattle Opera.
Admission to the luncheon is free. We respectfully request that each guest make a minimum donation of $200. Any donation of $500+ will be matched.
Doors open at 11:00am - Program begins at 12:00pm.
Thank you for being a part of this important event. Your support allows The Salvation Army to continue its life-saving work in the community.
Aidan Lang was selected as the General Director of the Seattle Opera in 2014 by the Seattle Opera Board of Trustees after a two-year, international search. Mr. Lang previously served as General Director of the New Zealand Opera from 2006-2013, and has also held positions of artistic leadership at operas companies around the world. The Salvation Army has a long history with music, and we are very excited for this new partnership.
