Coming Up... Believe: ELI's Inaugural Event

In light of recent increases of staff and resources dedicated to the Eastside Leadership Initiative, we have decided to design a premier event that exemplify's the values of our community. In uniting our mission with our purpose, we will be hosting a fun and lively event that brings together current and prospective leaders in the community to meet cornerstone organizations of the Eastside.

Non-profits come in different shapes and sizes and not all of them have the same needs. However, we saw this opportunity to elevate their voices and connect them to those looking to establish themselves as leaders. Often times, those looking to embed themselves in their communities and become more connected don't know what they don't know. By providing a forum for education and lively engagement, we are looking to inspire and motivate young professionals to be in 'the know'. Learning and meeting other individuals that share their interests and passions over food, drink, and games will serve as an exciting opportunity for everyone involved.

This event will be hosted on Thursday, May 30th, 2024 (5/30/24), at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. The garden should be in full bloom and the gray skies should be dissipating (no promises!). It will take place after work, from 5pm-7pm, with food, drinks, outdoor games, a raffle, photography and music.
