Get signed up on our special events email list to help out at our many special events! Lifelong produces three major fundraising events as well as participates in several other third-party and smaller events throughout the year.
The Seattle AIDS Walk & 5K Run is our largest event of the year and occurs every fall, usually the last Saturday in September. It takes over 400 volunteers to put on this event! Volunteer tasks include setup, greeting, registration, AIDS Memorial, handing out t-shirts and AIDS ribbons, collecting donations, course safety monitoring, cheerleading, breakdown, and after party tasks. Volunteers all get a free t-shirt, refreshments, and their own fundraising page.
Dining Out for Life occurs the last Thursday in April and is our second largest fundraising event. Over 120 restaurants in Seattle/King County will partner with us to donate 30% of their proceeds for the day to Lifelong. Volunteers act as ambassadors for Lifelong at the restaurants and are there to thank guests at participating restaurants, notify them about the event and Lifelong and our services, pass out raffle and donation envelopes, and monitor a donation box. This is a great opportunity for anyone who is outgoing, social, and loves to talk to people!
Fabulous, cheeky, wildly popular - we created this event over 20 years ago and it sparked the craze across the nation! Gay Bingo is a community fundraiser that has become a beloved Seattle institution. This 21 and over shindig is unbridled fun, complete with ridiculous musical numbers, hilarious drag queen antics, chances to win wonderful prizes, and much more!
Lifelong's Summer Supper is our annual major donor and auction. Volunteers are needed to ensure the night goes off seemlessly and assist with registration, auction duties and 50/50 raffle sales.
