2018 Human Rights Day Celebration & Fundraiser
December 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$40
Join the Rachel Corrie Foundation for our Sixth Annual Human Rights Day Celebration & Fundraiser on Monday, December 10th, 2018 at 6:30 pm at Dillinger’s Cocktails and Kitchen inside The Security Building in downtown Olympia to celebrate efforts to realize human rights for all, connect with our community, and financially support RCF work.
Celebrate with Community
The early years of RCF consisted of endless nights spent at kitchen tables with invested community members, piles of papers, and copious amounts of coffee. RCF has since transitioned to formal office space, although the community members, papers, and coffee are still present. We’ve called The Security Building home since 2006, and this year, we thought it would be special to invite our community into our home to celebrate, meet the neighbors, and share a connection to place.
The event will be held downstairs from our office at Dillinger’s, a prohibition themed craft bar and restaurant that pays homage to the beautiful historical building we all call home. Our guest speaker is Steffani Powell, a U.S. Immigration & Naturalization Lawyer, and our next-door office neighbor.
The menu, inspired by our work in Palestine, Steffani’s work with immigrants, and Dillinger’s commitment to local ingredients, will consist of delicious Latin and Middle Eastern inspired dishes paired with complimentary cocktails/mocktails.
We’re excited to celebrate, but more importantly, we’re honored to host an evening with our neighbors for our friends and supporters that will feel like coming home. Will you join us?
