“I’m not a hero and I’m not brave, I just got a chance to do what I love, and I did my best,” says Lauren Potter, best known as cheerleader Becky Jackson on the hit TV show Glee.
Career success like Potter’s is what Northwest Center’s 2018 Golden Hearts Luncheon is all about. This year’s event will raise funds for Transition Services, so more students with disabilities can find rewarding employment. As keynote speaker, Potter will share how she achieved her career goals.
“I am incredibly honored to speak to the people at Northwest Center,” Potter says. “I think the work being done by Northwest Center supports people to their fullest ability. It lets everybody know that we should be together, not separate. It helps give people a head start in life and makes them stronger. Without places like Northwest Center, inclusion is impossible!”
This year’s event will raise funds so that Northwest Center’s Transition Services team can expand to more students in schools throughout the region, supporting them as they transition from school into the workforce.
The 2018 Golden Hearts Luncheon takes place Tuesday, October 23 from noon-1 p.m. at the downtown Seattle Sheraton Hotel. Jordan Steele, Emmy Award-winning KING 5 meteorologist, will serve as emcee. Admission is open to the public with a suggested donation of $250.
Many thanks to the sponsors who make this event possible, especially Golden Hearts Partner Value Village™, as well as MCM, Pacific Office Automation, MacDonald-Miller, KeyBank, and TERRA Staffing Group.
