Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at The Westin Seattle
On Tuesday, November 29th over 600 people gathered in the Grand Ballroom of The Westin to enjoy the beautifully decorated Christmas trees and a wonderful lunch while supporting Providence Senior and Community Services.
Mimi Jung from King 5 News was back for her second year as the emcee and Sr. Susanne Hartung led the audience in a beautiful reflection in gratitude of the 160th anniversary of the Sisters of Providence. The audience was then moved by a video highlighting the story of one Providence Beneficiary and a testimonial from her daughter, Beth Upton.
Then, as desserts were enjoyed, everyone was treated to an incredible performance from The Seattle Men’s Chorus! Their closing song of “Go Tell It on a Mountain” brought out the Christmas spirit in everyone there and incited a long round of applause in gratitude. It was the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season!
Because of everyone who participated in this event, and the entire three days of Providence O’Christmas Trees, we were able to raise over $1.57 million, which is the most ever! This will make such a difference in the lives of the thousands of people benefitting from Providence Senior and Community Services.
Thank you to Leslie Wheatley, event chair, and the entire committee for making the event such a success. And to everyone who attended the Silver Bells Luncheon. We hope to see you all next year!

2017 Table Captain Information:
What does it mean to be a table captain?
A Table Captain commits to host a table of 10. This means inviting friends, family and colleagues that you think would be passionate about the Providence mission and would like to support Providence Senior and Community Services by attending the Silver Bells Luncheon and making a donation. You can choose to pay for your whole table (10 reservations), or you can have your guests pay for their own tickets.
Table Captains serve an important role in our fundraising efforts because you serve as representatives in the community for the good work being done within Providence Senior and Community Services. By hosting a table, you are introducing new people to our programs and directly supporting the most vulnerable and elderly population in Seattle.
