Local nonprofit Multi-Service Center (MSC) raised a record-breaking $131,049 (and counting) to provide help, hope, and change for our community through its annual MSC Helps Luncheon held on Oct. 19, 2023.

The capacity crowd at the Federal Way Performing Arts & Events Center was inspired by a keynote speech by former Seattle Seahawk, philanthropist and activist Doug Baldwin, and honored to present Bob Wroblewski with the Help, Hope, Change award.

Emceed by Ted Colby, the fundraiser included speeches by outgoing MSC CEO Robin Corak as well as new CEO Kirsten York.

“Thank you to those who attended and/or supported this event with a gift for making this possible!”
