AAF Seattle is simply nothing without its volunteers. While we always try our best to recognize and thank everyone--from volunteers to committee members to our board--for all they do, after all the effort over the past year we thought we should make a grander gesture.
Enter our friends The Tacoma Rainiers, who, through employee and ADDY chair, Audrey Berglund, stepped up and offered us a luxury suite complete with amenities. We got busy and coordinated a bus ride and beverages for the trip and a great day was planned.
The weather threatened, taking away throwing out the first pitch and ultimately the whole game, but not before we'd already had a great time.
And we had a backup plan: the nearby Park Way Tavern, where we closed out the day and verified Esquire magazine was right in naming it one of the best bars in America.
Yes, being a volunteer can be hard work but it's also a lot of fun, and more than a few people notice and appreciate the effort.
