On May 19, International Community Health Services (ICHS) and the ICHS Foundation, which supports affordable health care in the Seattle area, honored Fred Yee and the Children’s Alliance at Bloom, their fundraising gala at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront. Yee is the director of Kin On, an elderly health care center. The Children’s Alliance advocates for the health and safety of children in Washington. Both were honored with the Bamboo Award for Health, which recognizes resilience, community contributions, and health care. This month, ICHS was one of 12 organizations receiving a $2.1 million grant from Komen Puget Sound to fund breast cancer screenings, treatments, support, and education. (end)
