Gathering of Heroes: A celebration

Most of the 27 nominees were able to attend, and enjoy dinner while listening to some inspirational guest speakers. Christa Mazzone-Palmberg, a Sound Alliance Organizer spoke about the importance of working together as a community, and Sally Clark of the Seattle City Council remarked on the unprecedented event where she had never seen a group gather just to thank each other.
