🎂 Come to our birthday party?

Mark your calendars, Seattle. 🎉


We’ve made another complete rotation around the sun, y’all. That’s right, we are turning 2 YEARS OLD this month and putting together an epic Seattle celebration with the people who build this community with us every day — all of you.

Aside from our two-year anniversary, we will also be celebrating the launch of our Giving Guide, which is made possible by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. With your help, we gathered some of the best organizations and volunteer opportunities geared to giving back to our city.

Join us as we toast to everything we’ve done together and share the 206 love with drinks, music, and activities, while honoring the curious locals who help make Seattle great. » Ready to RSVP? Save your spot here.
