June 2022 Directors Letter

We’re going to have a party!   Exclusive Preview!

You’re invited to an event for the Sno-Valley Senior Center’s once-in-a-lifetime special project fund for the Sno-Valley Affordable Senior Apartments! 

Please come to the grassy area next to the parking lot at the Sno-Valley Senior Center on Wednesday, June 29 from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

  • Enjoy live music and appetizers.
  • See the architect drawings and the area for the Senior Housing.
  • Get all your questions answered.

This is your opportunity to learn and donate any amount in order to unlock more funds by our generous granters!  Our goal is only $300,000 because we’ve already raised $4 million in grants of the $6 million needed!!

You hold the key to opening the door to $2 million dollars more! Our final funder wants to know that all funds are in or pledged before giving the final amount so we need your special donation pledge by September 1st

To make it easier, we can take pledges that are not paid until the construction begins enabling you to give more than you might otherwise or even pay your pledge over time.  OR we can take cash or credit cards now. Any amount helps!

This is a special fund with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make Carnation a better community for low-income older adults forever!  This is a gift that will live on.  It’s a way to make a permanent impact on our community and for our seniors.

It’s also an opportunity for your name to live on!

At this party, we’ll have information about opportunities to buy a brick with your name engraved!  These bricks will go up the walkway to the apartments so your name or message will be visible to all for years to come. What an opportunity to make a permanent impact!

An engraved brick costs $1,000. You can put whatever message you like on it so be thinking about who you might like to honor or memorialize.  The brick can be paid for in ten $100 payments over time or all at once. At the event, we will unveil the size and the number of letters you can use on your special brick. You can order your brick at the event or on our website at https://snovalleysenior.org/ You also have the opportunity to pledge $10,000 for your name on a prominent plaque in the apartment lobby or $50,000 for the opportunity to name a room!

I can’t believe that we are so close to realizing our dream. I’ve been working on senior housing with the senior center since 2005.  Making this goal will allow us to break ground for 15 one-bedroom apartments right here in Carnation. No longer will our beloved seniors have to move out of the area to downsize a home or find an affordable place to live.

There’s more information on our website but if you have any questions about this – or anything – feel free to contact me at 425-333-4152 or Lisay@soundgenerations.org
