On Saturday, Feb. 5, the Seattle Hotel Association’s 14th Annual “Evening of Hope” dinner and auction gala raised funds for The Market Foundation for a second consecutive year; it also honored Howard and Sheri Schultz for their tireless community service and Mr. Schultz’s work in building Starbucks Coffee Company. Held at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel, the black tie event raised $555, 743, whose net proceeds will support the Foundation’s four human service agencies: the Pike Market Medical Clinic, the Pike Market Senior Center, the Pike Market Child Care and Preschool, and the Downtown Food Bank.
