Last week, over 130 people joined WACAP at the Washington Athletic Club in downtown Seattle for the second annual Children’s Hope Luncheon.
WACAP CEO Greg Eubanks took the stage to remind us all that there truly is a family for every child—and that WACAP is up to the task of finding them. “There is nothing more impactful,” Greg proclaimed, “nothing more transformational for a child, than to be provided with a committed, nurturing, permanent family.” It was a message that resonated with everyone in the room, as they took out their checkbooks and credit cards and donated generously to WACAP’s mission of finding families for children.
The true highlight of the afternoon was hearing from WACAP adoptee Maggie Redden, who took the stage and passionately shared her story. Maggie talked about growing up with her mom and younger sister, also adopted from India, and the family bond that’s only gotten stronger. After hearing about Maggie’s resolve as a student, athlete and Paralympian, as well as her work giving back and helping others, attendees left feeling inspired and excited to be a part of WACAP’s work.
Thank you Maggie, for being a part of this event, and thank you to everyone who joined us!
