Building Dreams—Bright Futures for Our Kids is an event that exists to ensure the sustainability of critical programs at area community and youth centers that bring our youth and families from uncertainty to stability.
In 2013, this event was established in response to an alarming increase in needed services coupled with funding cuts to vital programs. At that time, members of Spokane’s City Council, community and youth center directors and corporate sponsors came together to help sustain these important efforts.
Over the years, the event has grown along with the need for services and the support from our community. In 2017, through a collaborative effort of the West Central Community Center and Northeast Youth Center, this fundraising event brings people and resources together to create a collective, positive impact on our youth, families, neighborhoods and greater community.
