The Sold-Out NWIRP Annual Gala 2017 is this Friday, May 5th


We are thrilled that you are joining us for this monumental evening for immigrant rights and NWIRP’s largest-ever event, with over 1,200 guests attending. Below are key details to help you plan for the Gala.


Getting to the Westin

The Gala will be held at the Westin on 1900 5th Avenue, Seattle. If you park at the Westin, valet service is available for $26 at the main entrance of the hotel. There are also several parking lots located near the hotel noted here.

Once You Arrive

After entering the Westin, follow the signs and take the escalators to the second floor to arrive at registration. You do not need to bring proof of your ticket purchase to register. Once at registration, you will pre-swipe your credit card for any event purchases and also receive your name tag, drink tickets, and meal choice ticket.


The reception will begin at 6:00 pm on the fourth floor. However, you are welcome to arrive early, as registration and bars will be open at 5:30pm.


The dinner and program will begin in the fourth floor ballroom at 7:00 pm. During the program, you will enjoy dinner and live music, hear inspiring client stories, and have the opportunity to support our mission. You will also have the chance to bid on auction items including Seattle Seahawks tickets, a ten-night-stay in an historic mansion in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, a Tom Douglas coconut cream pie delivered to your table, and tickets to a very special lunch with NWIRP’s Seattle staff.


While there is no dress code, most guests will be in cocktail attire.

Thank you to our Annual Gala 2017 Sponsors
