Posted on by sbhatt

WHEN: Wednesday, Aug. 6, 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.,
WHERE: BOKA bar, Hotel 1000, 1st Ave & Madison in downtown Seattle (cash bar)

We’ll be celebrating many achievements: AAJA Seattle’s Chapter of the Year award and the elections of local AAJA members Sharon Chan and Candace Heckman to National office (President and Treasurer!) and the election of Robert Hernandez to the board of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. The Chapter of the Year award recognizes the work of many journalists in the Seattle area who raised $100,000 over four years to endow the Northwest Journalists of Color program.

Don’t forget there’s an After-after-party from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Bush Garden, 614 Maynard Ave S. in the Chinatown International District. Be prepared to sing your cheesiest tune.
