Make Someone Queen for a Day - Help a YWCA Client "Let Her Crown Shine"

You can make "A Night of Triumph" for special women faced with some of the greatest challenges of their lives.
You can also contribute to the event by securing a ticket for a student who couldn't otherwise attend, or with a corporate sponsorship. Learn how you can make a difference!

A Touch of Green...
and the Luck of the Irish
Whether you're truly Irish or just look good in green, you're not going to want to miss the 34th annual St. Patricks Day parade held on Saturday, March 17th Downtown, organized by the local non-profit Friendly Sons of St. Patrick. Beginning at noon, you'll be dancing your own little jig as you enjoy the magnificent floats, music and magic as the parade winds it's way through downtown.
With many fine eateries, shopping and much more, bring your little leprechans and make a day of it!
May the leprechauns be near you,
To spread luck along your way.
And may all the Irish angels,
Smile upon you St Patrick's Day.

Invest in Your Community - Support Measure 1
On April 17, voters will be asked if they wish to complete the expansion of the Convention Center facility, add more seats to the Arena, and improve the Centennial Trail all at the low, low cost of not raising taxes. This is an investment in the community that will provide a direct return by attracting more visitors, creating jobs, and increasing business.
An important catalytic project of the Downtown Plan Update, the Convention Center is a key anchor and destination for Downtown and a major generator of revenue and jobs for the region.
Completing the Convention Center will make Spokane a more desirable location for larger-scale, major conventions and events, which will generate more revenue and income for the community as a whole. A large part of the cost of improving the convention center will be paid for by visitors to our region through sales and hotel-motel taxes, NO PROPERTY TAXES!
Measure 1 will not increase the tax rate. Rather, it means that the current tax levels will be extended for an additional ten years, and will fund $65 million dollars of improvements.
Measure 1 will result in more than 800 new jobs in the Spokane region and will help retain more than 2,200 jobs in the local hotel-motel and restaurant industries.
For all these reasons, the DSP Board has formally endorsed this project.
