Video: West Seattleites in Northwest Hope & Healing’s “Style ’10″

April 30, 2010 at 7:33 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle video | 8 Comments

Take three minutes to watch our coverage of last night’s Northwest Hope and Healing “Style ’10″ fashion-show fundraiser, shot and edited for WSB by Edgar Riebe from West Seattle-based Captive Eye Media, and you’ll get the exuberant spirit of those who watched and participated at Showbox SODO – including West Seattleites involved with NWHH as well as West Seattle boutiques (Carmilia’s, Coastal, Sweetie) and Ola salon, as well as the new store West Seattle Runner. NWHH helps women get through the shattering experience of having just been diagnosed with breast cancer. NWHH executive director Shari Sewell told Edgar that about 350 people attended “Style ’10,” and that it raised at least $60,000 for Northwest Hope and Healing. He describes the crowd as “lively and dressed to the nines.” You’ve got another chance to be part of a major event to help NWHH later this year, right here in West Seattle – August 29 is the date set for the annual Alki Beach 5K Walk/Run.

  2. I always check out charities on Charity Navigator but Northwest Hope and Healing isn’t listed. The WA Secretary of State site shows Northwest Hope and Healing Foundation was dissolved in 2007.

    Is it a legit charity?

  3. Yes, you’re looking in the wrong place. It’s a 501(c)(3), IRS recognized:

  4. NW Hope & Healing is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our federal tax id number is 200799737 and our WA State UBI number is 602360752. We will work to correct any misinformation with WA State.

  5. We are so glad West Seattle Runner was able to be one of the West Seattle stores involved in this excellent charity. It was fabulous to see how wonderful the survivors and all the models looked in our clothes. We look forward to being part of the Northwest Hope and Healing 5K August 29!!!!What an inspiring organization.
