State of the Hill 2018

6-9pm February 21 
Queer/Bar (1518 11th Ave)

State of the Hill is our annual fundraiser and the biggest and best social event of the year for our members! 

We look forward to this event each year, and invite chamber members, local businesses, public officials and other hill-folk to gather at Queer/Bar to hear the State of the Hill address and celebrate all things Capitol Hill over local fare and cocktails.  

We'll have a champagne greeting; cocktail hour featuring cold drafts from Redhook Brewlab and wine from Aluel Cellars; and small bites from Big Mario's, Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge, Poquitos, and Rhein Haus. We'll also have coffee and sweets by Honor Society Coffee, Cafe Pettirosso and Nuflours Bakery.  Guests can bid in a silent auction to win fun items donated by neighborhood merchants. 
The cast of MX. will star in our very own queer/drag performance for State of the Hill with Lucy Tealheart Paradisco, Stacey Starstruck, Abbey Roads! Check out thequeerbar.com for more details about the cast and show!

We will present the Spirit Award to an individual that has shown an outstanding commitment to the Capitol Hill community in 2018. The Spirit Award represents the best of Capitol Hill through community service, excellence, and passion for this neighborhood.  

Thanks to our generous sponsors!

Repair Cafe

1-4pm February 10
Capitol Hill Tool Libarary (1552 Crawford)

The Capitol Hill Tool Library is holding a Repair Cafe on Seattle Neighbor Day!
Bring your broken household items - such as clothing, electronics, jewelry, small home appliances, or tools/knives that need sharpening - to the Tool Library, and our team of volunteer fixers will try to repair them or help you mend them.

This  free  community event is a great way to  keep stuff out of the landfill , conserve resources, and save money, as well as  chat with your neighbors  over snacks and coffee. Attendees will be helped first-come, first served, and must be present during the repair. We'll also have a free drawing for a gift certificate to Central Co-op

Valentine's Day Arts and Crafts Market
2-6pm January 11
Jubilee Women's Center (507 E Mercer St)

The Jubilee Associate Board is hosting an arts and crafts market to raise funds in support of Jubilee Women's Center, an organization that supports and houses women facing homelessness. A display of crafts and art by local Seattle artists will be available for purchase, along with light libations to enjoy while shopping. Products will vary from paintings, graphic prints and stationary sets, to embroidered home decor, jewelry, ceramics, and more!

Come on by with your family and friends and support the extraordinary women of Jubilee!

Affordability and Housing
