Building Health at Big Daddy's
On March 9th, the 30/30 Project hosted our second annual Building Health Event at Big Daddy’s Antiques. The night kicked off with food by Seattle-chef Ethan Stowell, a performance by soul musician Allen Stone, and special guests Kweku Mandela and Ryan Lewis.The room was in high spirits, celebrating our fourth year of the project and the funding of 17 healthcare projects in nine countries, including two local projects. Founder of the 30/30 Project, Julie Lewis shared her thoughts, emphasizing that, while the 30/30 Project has been able to help so many who lack access to adequate health care, there is still so much that can be done. “I realize now that every day wasted, every delay we encounter in bringing healthcare access to these communities in need, actually costs lives. The longer we take means some people aren’t going to make it. The most vulnerable: children, pregnant moms, the elderly, the extreme poor. ”We at the 30/30 Project want to extend a huge thank you to all of those who have rallied behind us and have supported our mission! This year’s Building Health Event raised over $350,000 which will allow at least three more medical facilities to be built.We could not further our mission without the help from our donors, vendors and supporters: Alabastro Photography, Allen Stone, Colin McArthur, DJ Belaux, Big Daddy's Antiques, Chris Nishiwaki, Katherine Cheng, Johansen Mechanical, Love Squared Designs, Mac and Jack's Brewing Company, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Martinez Family, Pyramid Staging & Events, Rachel’s Ginger Beer, Schultz Miller, ShutterBus, Seattle Mariners, and Zoe Rain Photo.
