The annual Seattle Event is JVC Northwest’s largest gathering and fundraiser of the year. Each year over 250 current and former Jesuit Volunteers and Jesuit Volunteer EnCorps members come together with staff members, our service placements, Jesuits, Board members, and friends to celebrate the service they provide to those on the margins throughout the Northwest, and to support the future of the organization.

This year’s event will recognize and honor the historical significance of our first volunteer placement, Copper Valley School (CVS), and all those who served there between its opening in 1956 to its closing in 1971. All former lay missioners and Jesuit Volunteers who served at CVS are especially encouraged to attend and be recognized for your pioneering contributions to our 60 year history. Students and friends from CVS are also welcome to attend.

A block of hotel rooms at a discounted rate have been booked at the Silver Cloud Hotel next to Seattle University. For information on how to book, please email Zach, or simply call (206) 325-1400 and ask for the JVC Northwest room rate. Rooms are available Thursday June 1 through Sunday, June 4.
