Tulalips to give $6.9M to nonprofits

TULALIP — The Tulalip Tribes on Saturday plan to announce $6.9 million in donations this year to nonprofits and community groups, a record for the tribes.

The Tulalip Tribes’ 21st annual “Raising Hands” event is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday in the Orca Ballroom at the Tulalip Resort Casino, 10200 Quil Ceda Blvd.

The donations are being spread among more than 280 community groups in the fields of education, health and human services, cultural preservation, public safety, the environment and the economy.

“In the Tulalip Tribes tradition, we raise our hands to show appreciation to the organizations that work so hard to provide services to our community,” Tulalip tribal chairman Mel Sheldon said. “The Tulalip Tribes holds this event every year to let these individuals, organizations, and surrounding communities know that we value their good works.”

Nonprofit and community groups may apply for quarterly awards. For information go to the Tulalip Tribes Charitable Funds website at www.tulalipcares.org.
