Washington Retail recently joined the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce for their Business Awards Gala and Fundraiser.

The 2023 Business Awards Gala recognized outstanding individuals and businesses in the Seattle Southside, showcasing their dedication to excellence in various categories, from Public Servant of the Year to Best Place to Work.

Guest speakers and local high school students participated in the Chamber’s Success Foundation’s Workforce Discovery Lab. The Workforce Discovery Lab is a summer youth program that empowers students from underserved households, providing them with professional skills-building opportunities and hands-on career exploration workshops. Students from the 2023 cohort emphasized the Workforce Discovery Lab’s positive impact on their lives. Their stories helped encourage attendees to participate in the evening auction and contribute directly to the Chamber’s foundation fundraiser.

Congratulations to the Seattle Southside Chamber on 35 years, and cheers to 35 more!
