Luncheon shines light on Walla Walla services

I’m excited to announce our SweetHearts for Kids luncheon has been scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center, 6 W. Rose St.,Walla Walla.

We love hosting this event ever year because it gives the community an opportunity to come together and learn about the vital services that the Children’s Home Society of Washington provides to children in Walla Walla and the surrounding area.

We are honored to have Jason Gortney, director of Policy and Innovation for Children’s Home Society of Washington, as keynote speaker. He is nationally and internationally recognized for developing innovative solutions in child and family services with top researchers around the country.

If you would like to attend, tickets are $40. Online registration closes on Feb. 15.

Meagan Anderson-Pira serves as the director for services in Walla Walla County.
