Seattle Hotel Association’s 17th annual “Evening of Hope” Gala was held on Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel’s Spanish Ballroom. More than 350 guests, adorned in their finest '20s attire, raised $495,000 for the Seattle Police Foundation’s mission and the Seattle Police Department’s efforts to combat domestic and family violence in Seattle.

An elegant four-course dinner was created by the hotel’s Executive Chef Gavin Stephenson.  The Ballroom shimmied with frivolity and grandeur, setting the backdrop for an evening of “Who Done It.”
