2015 MSC Helps Luncheon
Thursday, October 22, 2015
Honorary Co-Chairs: Jim Berrios, Bob Celski, and Pete Lewis
2300 Emerald Downs Drive, Auburn, Washington
This year's topic focus is on how MSC serves veterans through all our programs and Alfie Alvarado, Director of the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs, will be our keynote speaker. We selected to highlight how MSC helps veterans this year because MSC broke ground on our Veterans' Housing Project this past June. This new project will provide housing for veterans and their families, as well as provide services on-site that will help veterans find stability. This project is just one of the ways that MSC helps the growing number of veterans in need in South King County. The MSC Helps Luncheon will raise funds to support all of MSC's programs, all of which provide help, hope, and change to the many veterans in need of services in our community.
Gather your friends and join us for a fundraising luncheon to benefit MSC. Our guest speaker, Alfie Alvarado, was appointed Director of the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs by Governor Inslee in 2013. Alfie served 22 years on active duty, retiring in August 1993 as Command Sergeant Major of Madigan Army Medical Center and Troop Command, Joint Base Lewis-McChord. During her military career, she was the recipient of awards and decorations that include the Legion of Merit, Order of Military Medical Merit, Expert Field Medical Badge, and Meritorious Service Medals. Alfie serves on the boards of directors of the Patrick Madigan Foundation, National Association of State Veterans Homes, National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs, and the Association of Washington Generals. She has received local, state, and national awards including the Governor's Distinguished Management Leadership Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award for women in the military from the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) and the VA Secretary's Leadership Award. Alfie will share insights on the needs of our veterans and what we can do as a community to help those who have served our country.
