Best Ever Valerie Logan Lunch: $120K Raised

The 5th Annual Valerie Logan Luncheon, which took place on Nov. 29, was our most successful yet, having raised $120,000 for ISB’s education programs. There were a few tear-jerker moments, including when Lee Hood interviewed some students: Sara Michelassi, who will graduate next spring with her high school diploma AND her AA in science from North Seattle College, said that she’s always dreamed of working in a lab, “but I doubted if that dream was achievable, because I thought I needed connections or lots of money in order to land such a competitive internship. But ISB showed me that everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue their dreams, no matter their status.” The double whammy was when Sara expressed her gratitude for having a paid internship, which helped to support her family.

Thank you to our sponsors!
