A lively live auction, a dynamic fashion show, cultural sharing and laughter – a lot of laughter. That’s how Greg Masten will remember Northwest Indian College’s 5th Annual TL’aneq’: Gathering for a Celebration benefit dinner and Native cultural arts and experiences auction.
“The 2013 TL’aneq’ event was a great night,” said Masten, director of NWIC’s Development Office, which organizes the event. “We were thrilled with the turnout and people had a lot of fun.”
The event, held April 12 at the Swinomish Casino & Lodge, was attended by tribal and non-tribal NWIC supporters from Washington all the way down to Southern California. Together, those supporters helped raise nearly $120,000 for NWIC student scholarships.
