Celebrate 18!

Celebrate 18! is an annual state-wide birthday party held in mid-July for young girls aging out of foster care.  The day-long event is an opportunity for these girls to be pampered with new clothes, shoes, jewelry, and services by professional hairdressers and makeup artists. The party concludes  with a catered dinner, the Happy Birthday song, messages from foster alum and tons of gifts. Celebrate 18! is a birthday celebration they will never forget.

2019 Celebrate 18! Event Highlights

Sponsors, Contributors, Partners, and Donors from throughout King County were in complete agreement that this population needed to know they were not forgotten but cared about and loved. From 22″ rolling duffel bags (of various styles & colors) to hand-made fragranced soaps to makeup by Mary Kay specialists and hairstyles by The Beyond Project every girl received individual attention. The Ruby Room brought racks of “party dresses” and the volunteers made sure the girls were treated like royalty throughout the room. The full essence of the event was captured by Olivia Sullivan, a reporter for the Federal Way Mirror:

Get in Touch. Get Involved.

We'd love to hear from you!
