Get on Your Soapbox for Town Hall!

We invite you to join us on Friday, April 12th for Town Hall’s 2024 Gala! As we celebrate Town Hall Seattle’s 25th season — our silver anniversary — we invite the community to step up to the “Silver Soapbox” and celebrate with us. We’re excited to honor Town Hall’s past and present and look toward the future with you! 

Our Cause

The Gala is Town Hall’s key fundraising event of the year, with proceeds directly supporting our sliding scale ticket model and year-round programming. A successful Gala ensures our commitment to affordable tickets, including our policy of free tickets for everyone 22 & under. Our goal this year is to raise $400,000, and we hope you’ll help us reach our target by showing up, raising your paddle, or donating in lieu. 


Ticket Price: $350 

Table Price: $2,800 (Tables accommodate parties of 8)
