Breaking the cycle for teens at Cocoon House
The community is invited to enjoy a dinner, live auction and desserts and, most importantly, an opportunity to help Cocoon House break the cycle of youth homelessness.
The 8th Annual Evening in Silk Dinner and Auction is scheduled for 5:30-9 p.m. on Oct. 18 at the Tulalip Resort Casino. Tickets are $80.
The funds raised through auction items and fun activities at the annual fundraiser will support the work Cocoon House does with at-risk and homeless youth and their families throughout Snohomish County.
Every dollar raised will go toward breaking the cycle for teens escaping the streets and working to better their lives at Cocoon House.
The event will be held at the Tulalip Resort Casino, at 10200 Quil Ceda Blvd. near Marysville.
Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. To register visit www.secure.qgiv.com/for/cocoonhouse/event/35996/.
