Dear KYFS Supporter,

After a year of planning and working, it seems that the KYFS One Thing Experience and Pacific Northwest Weather are at odds with each other. Like all of you, we are anxiously watching weather reports and hitting refresh on those apps. In the event that we do need to cancel the event, we will make the announcement via the following platforms:

As our largest fundraising event of the year, we gather with our supports to celebrate the fact that more and more families are having frank conversations about mental health and substance abuse. Access to early childhood education has never been higher. Our after school centers are buzzing with busy minds. More homeless moms and their kids are using the phrase, “formerly homeless.” We also gather to ensure families in South King County have accesses to our services for the year ahead. That’s why your support is so critical. If you have already decided against attending the event, but would still like to support the youth and families of our community. Please click here:

With fingers crossed,
