After some beach time, do an early sunset kayak tour, courtesy of Alki Tours Kayaking… And end your day with the wonderful cuisine at Saltys and the magnificent view of the sun set reflected in the Seattle city skyline

Bring 3 friends and come along with NVSU Director Bob Fraser and Simon Forgette on a Scenic Cruise of Lake Washington. Pan-Asian appetizers will be served prior to boarding at Simon’s lakefront home and during your voyage, you will be entertained by Simon, who will provide fascinating tidbits about the houses you’ll see along the lake front. What could be more relaxing than a beautiful summer’s night cruise on the lake.  Thanks, Bob and Simon! 
Take a break from your responsibilities and stay three days on the Oregon Coast.  Visit the quaint and quintessential coastal town of Nye Beach in Newport, Oregon.  Stay at the Nye Haven Beach Condo in Newport, recently updated and within walking distance of the Ocean.  Some say it has the feel of a “mini-San Francisco”.
Dine one day at Georgie’s Beachside Grill.  As you enter, the first thing you notice is the view – the Pacific Ocean unfolds from tableside windows and sets the scene for a remarkable dining experience.
Enjoy another dining experience at Clearwater Bistro, overlooking sea lions and fishing boats. The food is seasonal and local:  sourced fresh seafood, grain fed meats, sustainably harvested organic foods, and other ingredients from local vendors whenever possible.
Take a Seattle Seaplane Tour where everyone has a window seat, and experience a 20-minute narrated sightseeing tour of Seattle.  You will see Lake Union’s famous houseboat communities, the UW campus, lakeside and bayside estates, the sports stadiums and the dramatic downtown skyline on Elliott Bay.  And see what MoPOP looks like from the air! 
In the evening, wine and dine at Canlis, truly a Seattle icon, and winner of the James Beard Outstanding Wine Program Award for 2017.  This storied building was first designed by Roland Terry in 1950.  Both Jim Cutler and Geroge Suyama have helped develop it into an iconic expression of modern design.  It continues to delight guests from all over the world with its natural light and stunning view of Lake Union and the Cascade mountain range.
The Fotopoulos family invites your party to revel at their traditional Greek restaurant and bar.  Enjoy home-style recipes from the Peloponnese region of Greece while taking in the spectacular West Seattle view of Elliott Bay.  Petro is a master chef and successful provider of “the Greek experience.”  Includes two drinks per person – excellent on a summer eve for that special occasion or just anytime – Petro can assist you in making arrangements

Our goal is to procure $35,000 from now until May 20th to cover the funding shortfall this year due to COVID-19.


Between now and May 20th, help support NVS by sending a check or go our make a donation page to pay with credit card or Paypal.

"The board members of NVS sincerely appreciate your support of NVS. We are very excited to announce our annual spring gala fundraiser will be May 20th at 5:30 p.m. The "Spring Fling" will be an online event this year, featuring live music and inspiring stories of people returning to work. Working helps people regain their independence and build confidence. The need for employment support in our community continues to grow as more people move to Seattle and awareness increases of the effectiveness of our work. Your donations and support have a significant impact on people in our community. ..."
