United Way hosts Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Everett AquaSox

EVERETT — For more than a dozen years, United Way of Snohomish County has hosted Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Everett AquaSox. This year's event, featuring free tickets to all volunteers in Snohomish County and their families, will be held on Monday, Aug. 6, starting at 6:40 p.m. in the Everett Memorial Stadium, located at 3900 Broadway in Everett. The organization will also present the winner of this year's Roger Bouck Award for Volunteerism in Action just before the first pitch against the Boise Hawks.

"Snohomish County has a very generous spirit," said Dennis G. Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. "We are thrilled to once again offer a tangible 'thank you' to all of our county's volunteers — not just the ones who work with United Way — and to recognize one of this year's most outstanding volunteers in Snohomish County."

The award recognizes an individual or organization that demonstrates visible support for volunteerism, shows results achieved in promoting volunteerism, mobilizes volunteers or increases the community's ability to mobilize and engage volunteers, and has a community-wide focus.

Last year's winner of the Roger Bouck Award was Janet Kavadas, a longtime volunteer with United Way of Snohomish County, the YMCA of Snohomish County and the South Snohomish County Health and Safety Network.

Any Snohomish County resident who volunteered with any organization in any capacity is eligible for free tickets for themselves and their families. To reserve tickets, please call 425-374-5530 or email jessica.gaitan@uwsc.org.

The event is co-sponsored by the Everett AquaSox.
