You Helped Make Eat, Drink & Be Generous a Night To Remember

By United Way of King County, on April 22, 2022 | In Eat, Drink & Be Generous, Events, Fighting Homelessness, Helping Students Graduate

You know people are enjoying themselves at an event when the aisles between seated tables become a dance floor and a local artist—who showed up for the food and fun—stages an impromptu mini concert.

That’s what happened on Wednesday night at United Way of King County’s Eat, Drink & Be Generous event at Metier Brewing Company in Woodinville.

Eat, Drink & Be Generous was launched by United Way in 2020 as a series of events centered around tasty food and raising money to support the community. The events are held throughout King County-area restaurants and virtually to offer people opportunities to alleviate food and housing insecurity faced by the community, particularly by Black, Indigenous and people of color.

On Wednesday night, a packed house was treated to a scrumptious buffet from That Brown Girl Cooks catering while hearing about the many programs United Way offers to help improve the lives of people in King County.

Music was provided by William Muñoz Latin Jazz, whose rhythms were so pulsating they prompted Jaqueline Tabor, a popular singer and self-proclaimed Seattle Chanteuse, to grab the mic and serenade the audience with a few mellow tunes. That led to dancing in the aisles, as duos and foursomes showed off their moves until closing time.

United Way thanks all of those came out and helped make all of our Eat, Drink & Be Generous events a success. We appreciate you.
