About This Event:

Featuring the UNCF BBQ Cook-Off and Kids Happy Hour


In its fifth year since 2000, the Seattle UNCF Walk, Run, Bike for Education is a broad-based community fundraising event in which corporations and organizations can sponsor/underwrite and/or individuals can recruit family members, friends and co-workers to participate in this non-competitive walk/run/bike to raise much needed funds for UNCF. Everyone who believes that "A mind is a terrible thing to waste" should come out and invest in Better Futures for our young people - college degrees.

UNCF currently supports more than 500 students from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. The 5K walk/run and 10K family bike will start at Edwin T. Pratt Park in Central District neighborhood of Seattle. The day will also feature the fourth annual UNCF BBQ Cook-Off for Education and Kids Happy Hour.

The Mountaintop

Saturday, September 27, 2014
About This Event:


Please join UNCF for the September 27th performance of "The Mountaintop" will benefit UNCF. THE MOUNTAINTOP takes place on the re-imagined eve of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination. We meet Dr. King, weary, restless, and in a lonely hotel room. Visited by a mysterious young woman and forced to confront the meaning of his life, his destiny, and his own humanity, we are given a glimpse into the person behind his revered leadership. Gripping, daring, and powerful, this play melds humanness with legacy, and mortality with spirituality. Dr. King was a graduate of UNCF member institution, Morehouse College.

Tickets are $60/person and 50% of the ticket sales will directly go to UNCF to support local students. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy wine, heavy appetizers, and a raffle giveaway before the show. To purchase tickets, please visit www.artswest.org
4711 California Ave. SW, will be the location of this event.
