The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) hosted a gala and auction at the Hyatt Olive 8 on Nov. 2, raising over $300,000 for low-income housing, services, and the Urban Rest Stop.
In addition to raising money, the Institute presented Senator Ed Murray with the 2012 Housing Hero award for his contributions to affordable housing. Other honorees included architect Chris Libby of GGLO and The Home Depot Foundation.
LIHI develops, owns, and operates housing for the benefit of low-income, homeless, and formerly homeless people in Washington State. (end)
