8th Annual Excellence in Affordable Housing Award Ceremony & Fundraiser

October 17, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm

Excellence in Affordable Housing features a relaxed environment recognizing housing champions. This is the best opportunity to meet Pierce County housing developers and advocates while supporting a movement that will get more affordable housing built in the community.

A fun and commemorative event unlike any other in Pierce County, Excellence in Affordable Housing draws in the most respected and experienced affordable housing developers of Pierce County along with elected officials, champions of affordable housing, business owners, and community stewards.

Hors d’ oeuvres will feature an elegant twist on our most beloved comfort foods including cocktail meatballs, mac and cheese bites, garden vegetable crudité, artisan cheese board, and smoked salmon lox bruschetta – will be passed, plated, and/or served from vendor stations. In addition, an open bar will be featuring wine from local vineyards and a selection of beer sure to please everyone.

Throughout the evening, you will have multiple giving opportunities including a chance to win from an amazing raffle selection!

Excellence in Affordable Housing is one of Pierce County’s premier fundraising and award events benefitting the Tacoma-Pierce County Affordable Housing Consortium (TPCAHC). TPCAHC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing education and advocacy to promote and encourage affordable housing development in Pierce County. Now in its 8th year, TPCAHC has raised over $170,000 dollars through our annual event to hold educational programs to enhance County-wide knowledge of affordable housing need and advocacy to encourage the development of more affordable housing. Since its inception in 1996, TPCAHC has offered community education on a variety of housing-related topics through training, public forums, community meetings, “Lunch and Learn” meetings, and by speaking at local community events. Education is the first component in addressing a community need and through our outreach, we have worked to build a base of support for housing advocacy. Our advocacy efforts include hosting candidate forums, working with and prepping local advocates to testify at hearings, partnering with regional coalitions on their advocacy days, and working with local cities, Pierce County, and state elected officials to adopt housing-friendly policies that will encourage investment of affordable housing.
