The 6th annual Passion for the Village takes place Saturday, May 16, and we’re thrilled with the continued support this year! The event is nearly sold out, but the community is encouraged to join the passion for children’s health care services by making a donation and by supporting the many local businesses that are sponsoring this event. The goal this year is to raise $75,000 for Children’s Village!
We are so grateful for this year’s sponsors, which include: WSECU, KDF Architecture, John L. Scott Foundation, Cintas, Allan Bros. Inc., Banner Bank, Hyatt Family Facilities, Kershaw Companies, Key Bank, Les Schwab Tires, Monson Fruit Company, MT Housing, Poppoff Inc., Rowe Farms, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Yakima Fruit and Cold Storage.
Donations can be made online at https://nc.memfound.org/makeyourdifference, by calling (509) 576-5794 or by mail: Passion for the Village Donation, The Memorial Foundation, 2701 Tieton Dr., Yakima, WA 98902.
What started as a project of high school students on the YouthWorks Council has grown and evolved with the passion of community members and parents for Children’s Village. The event is held at Children’s Village to allow guests an inside look at how their donation helps local children, and families attend to provide first-hand testimonies about what Children’s Village means to them.
The passion of the many families who volunteer to make this event possible are what make the event so unique. Dana Kovats has chaired the Passion for the Village Planning Committee. Read about her passion for Children’s Village here: http://childrensvillage.memfound.org/whats-passion.
