Kin On hosted an auction gala on Sunday, Sept. 16 at the Bellevue Grand Hyatt, with proceeds going towards its efforts in providing care for Seattle’s elderly Chinese community. Over 400 people attended, raising over $100,000.

Founded in 1985, Kin On  operates a 100-bed nursing home facility  located in Seattle which features a bilingual professional staff and predominately Chinese diet and which honors traditional Chinese traditions of respect and dignity. In addition to administering their own facility, Kin On provides in-home care, emergency alert care, and support for individuals with Alzheimer’s. In 2010, Kin On was honored by the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation as an Asian American Pioneer in Healthcare. (end)
