For 27 years, Nexus Youth and Families – formerly Auburn Youth Resources – has gathered with the public to celebrate the pivotal work being done in our community – tackling the region’s most challenging issues.
The 27th Annual Valentine Breakfast fundraiser, one of Auburn’s largest community fundraisers, returns Friday, Feb. 9 to Grace Community Church, 1320 Auburn Way S. Breakfast begins at 6:30 a.m., followed by an inspirational program at 7.
This year, the theme of the event is “awakening destinies,” said Development Director Michael Jackson.
“When the community comes out to support this event, they are literally funding that stepping stone a young person needs to get them on the path to a healthier destiny,” Jackson explained.
The event is put on in partnership with longtime supporter, The Fleck Family Foundation. Local caterer Café Pacific Catering will provide breakfast.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the impact they have made on local young people, view a video story of a former Nexus client, and witness “Geoffrey’s Jar.” There will also be a chance to win a dinner for two at El Gaucho in Tacoma, dinner for two at Canlis in Seattle, and participate in a 50/50 cash raffle.
