A Hybrid Gala and Auction

Saturday, May 14, 2022

Free Virtual Tickets Still Available!

We are excited to announce that West Seattle Food Bank will be hosting Instruments of Change 2022 as a hybrid event, with virtual options this year. Whether you choose to join us at the beautiful Seattle Design Center or prefer taking part from comfort of your home, both options will provide a fun and entertaining evening, while supporting the West Seattle Food Bank’s mission.

Several Ways to Participate

This year, we have several options for in-person or at-home attendance.

  • In-Person – Join us at the Seattle Design Center for happy hour, games, dinner, silent and live auctions, and the program.
  • At-Home Free – Attend a pre-program virtual happy hour with chat games, virtual bidding on the silent and live auctions, and the program itself.
  • At-Home with Dinner – Same as above, but you will also get to enjoy the same dinner from Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes that in-person attendees will, delivered to your own home within 10 miles of Sodo.

Covid Precautions and Preparations

We are prepared for whatever Covid throws at us. The event will proceed, even if it has to move entirely virtually. However, we want to present the option for a safe, socially-distanced in-person gathering if possible!

Proof of Vaccination will be required for all in-person attendees. Vaccine cards will be checked at the door.

The health and safety of our supporters, volunteers, staff and community at-large are of the utmost importance. Therefore, we will be requiring all individuals attending this year’s Instruments of Change Gala in person to be fully vaccinated with either one dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine or two-doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Additionally, to ensure the safety of all our guests, we will be limiting capacity of the venue to 50%, reducing table seating to 8 people, enforcing masking when not eating or drinking, and spacing all of the festivities out more than in the past.
