On November 14, 2013, Lawyers Helping Hungry Children held joint fundraisers in Seattle and Tacoma.  The King County Chapter held its 22nd annual fundraiser this year at the Grand Hyatt in Seattle.  The luncheon was emceed by Ian Lindsay, and featured a keynote address by Hunger Warrior award winner Chef John Howie, Bellevue restaurateur and owner of John Howie Steak, Seastar and Sport Restaurants.  The Hawthorne Elementary School Choir entertained the biggest crowd to date, and attendees also had the opportunity to bid on gift certificates generously donated by Chef Howie, with all proceeds benefitting hungry children in King County and beyond.  The event was the most successful to date and raised over $28,000 to assist beneficiary organizations, including Northwest Harvest, the City of Seattle Summer Food Program, the Emergency Feeding Program, WithinReach, CARE and the Children’s Alliance.

The Pierce County Chapter of Lawyers Helping Hungry Children held its fifth annual breakfast fundraiser the same day.  The breakfast was attended by over 60 Tacoma attorneys and Judges and raised over $10,000 for emergency food programs in Pierce County.  The Pierce County chapter raised an additional $2,700 for hunger relief programs from members of the Inns of Court.
