Why OWN? Why NOW? Reception & OWN Talks on 5/3/17

Eat, drink, be merry, and support your favorite international education program in Seattle – OneWorld Now!

OneWorld Now! at the Impact Hub to mix and mingle over appetizers and drinks, then kick back and listen to program alumni deliver compelling and inspiring “OWN Talks” – our take on TED Talks. The OWN Talks will explore the question “Why OWN? Why NOW?” by and sharing how they’ve been inspired to tackle issues like immigration reform, Islamophobia, harnessing technology for innovations in medicine, and more.

Blind Wine Pull:

For $20 you can participate in a blind wine pull. We have a selection of delicious wines, ranging from $10 to $100 a bottle. The bottles are wrapped in tissue paper so you won’t know what you’re getting until you’ve paid, pulled a bottle and unwrapped it. It’s a gamble but, either way, you win wine! And, after all, wine is win with an “e” added to it. You can enjoy the bottle at the event or take it home. (Must be at least 21 years old and show valid identification).

The speaker who generates the most in donations will win 50,000 airline miles on Alaska Air. It’s a win-win-win all around! You get to make a tax deductible donation and feel good, OWN gets support for our programs, and one lucky OWN alumni wins an opportunity to travel!
