Huge thanks to everyone who attended Earth Ministry/WAIPL’s spring fundraiser Faith, Hope, Chocolate, and Art! Over 150 people enjoyed organic treats, sustainable wine, and local art at Alki Arts gallery in downtown Seattle on March 27.

Our keynote speaker was King County Executive Dow Constantine, who did a fantastic job of laying out the key environmental issues facing our region and how Earth Ministry/WAIPL has engaged the faith community to play an important role in addressing them.

Steve Sundquist, board member of one of our partner organizations and long-time Earth Ministry/WAIPL member, spoke eloquently regarding our efforts to stop the export of dirty coal from Northwest ports and gave his perspective on our effective work supporting church green teams.

Earth Ministry/WAIPL board chair Tim Nuse and Executive Director LeeAnne Beres rounded out our speakers, highlighting the vital role that our members play in our shared successes. Thanks to your generosity, we raised nearly $15,000 to support our ongoing environmental stewardship and advocacy efforts.
