The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI)’s 30th Anniversary Virtual Gala & Auction raised $402,000 for its Tiny House villages, urban rest stops, supportive services, and volunteer programs.
The online event ran from Nov. 1–15. There were 55 gala sponsors, silent auction items, and a “raise the paddle” event that brought in donations and sponsorships.
An online video featuring tiny house residents, LIHI Executive Director Sharon Lee, King County Councilmember Girmay Zahilay, State Rep. Frank Chopp, and LIHI Boardmember Melinda Nichols was also shown.
Melinda Nichols says
I would like to state that Sharon Lee, leader of the Low Income Housing Institute is a tremendous hero of the community. Her powerful struggle to end homelessness has created over 2700 units and 500 tiny houses. Her protection of the vulnerable has helped thousands of them. Supporting LIHI is one of the best things we can do.
