Thank You!


Thank you to everyone who attended our 2013 Gala Event, Una Noche en Sevilla!

What a wonderful evening. Be sure to view our full gallery of photos on Facebook – or Flickr.

With your help, we were able to raise a total of $21,907 to directly support the NWLA’s mission of bringing language and cross-cultural education and enrichment to the Pacific Northwest community.


The evening was attended by over 130 people from diverse backgrounds, coming together to celebrate the work of the NWLA Cultural Center and enjoy the fabulous 5 course dinner by Chef Wiegner, the fascinating slide show of Sevillan life by Penny Cabot and Vivienne Whiffen Photography, and of course the transporting music and dance of Carmona Flamenco. Both the silent auction and live auction presented unique and diverse trips, services and items.


A special thank you to our Board of Directors, Gala Coordinators and all who volunteered their time to help with the event, and especially our sponsors and auction donors, for making our 2013 Gala such a wonderful success!
