Distilled 2018
A fundraiser for Town Hall featuring Annie Leonard and Brady Piñero Walkinshaw
Friday, May 18, 2018, 7:00PM
Canvas Event Space (South Seattle)

A dash of civics. A splash of art. A heap of fun. We’re concocting the essential night out for Town Hall!

Come together for a night of cocktails, conversation, music, and the opportunity to raise-the-paddle in support of Town Hall. Distilled is Town Hall’s annual fundraiser where we boil down the essence of our organization–the empathy of an organizer, curiosity of a scientist, creativity of the artist, voice of the people–into a night of celebration and support.

Your night begins with a cocktail party with your fellow Town Hall supporters and a few Seattle luminaries where you’ll enjoy signature drinks from Sound Spirits, delicious hors d’oeuvres, games, and great conversation. The festivities continue with live music, a program featuring friends of Town Hall like Annie Leonard and Brady Piñero Walkinshaw, and a chance to raise your paddle to support Town Hall.

Brady Piñero Walkinshaw is the CEO of Seattle’s own environmental media outlet Grist. He served in the Washington State House of Representatives from 2013 to 2017, representing the 43rd district. As a Fulbright Scholar, he founded a nonprofit in Honduras that fosters youth leadership and prevents urban violence.

Annie Leonard is the Executive Director of Greenpeace USA. Leonard began her career at Greenpeace in 1988 and has returned to help the organization inspire and mobilize millions of people to take action to create a more sustainable future. Her film, The Story of Stuff, blossomed into The Story of Stuff Project, which works to empower people around the globe to fight for a more sustainable and just future.

Your night begins with a cocktail party with your fellow Town Hall supporters and a few Seattle luminaries where you’ll enjoy signature drinks from Sound Spirits, delicious hors d’oeuvres, games, and great conversation. The festivities continue with live performances by musical guests Chris Staples and Laura Gibson, and a program featuring two environmentalist powerhouses and longtime friends of Town Hall. Join Annie Leonard (former Town Hall speaker and current Executive Director of Greenpeace USA) and Brady Piñero Walkinshaw (CEO of Grist), for a chance to raise your paddle to support Town Hall.

Distilled is our annual public fundraiser and all proceeds support our ongoing work. A portion of each ticket is tax-deductible.
