The second annual Party with a Purpose was held on Wednesday, September 29th, at the Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Bellevue. This event is a chance for Eastside business folks to get together and raise money for CF. Everybody gets drink coupons for one of the brewery's great beers and gets to munch on some tasty food.
This year's event raised over $13,000, a 30% increase over last year! Your Tax Dollars at Work, our business-oriented drinking team (or drinking-oriented business team), had two members this year, Robert and the retiring-next-day Tom Eksten. In addition to the drinks and food, we all took advantage of the free massages provided by Premier Chiropractic (www.premierchiropractic.net). The team from Microsoft was presented the Silver Stein Award (the Steiny) for raising the most money.
