Table Captain

Bring your friends, your family and your community together for this year’s Be the Bridge Spring Benefit.

Be the Bridge Spring Benefit, our primary fundraiser for Lake Washington Schools Foundation, provides an opportunity for all of us to give back and invest in the next generation.

Each year, Lake Washington Schools Foundation asks our Table Captains to fill the room. This year, we are asking you to do it “virtually.” It’s a fun and simple way to support the Lake Washington School District.

Table Captains invite guests to donate to LWSF and to attend our live stream event on Thursday, April 28. If your guests cannot attend the live stream event, they can make a donation via your fundraising page at any time leading up to April 28!
