Friends of Youth’s ninth annual Celebration of Youth luncheon is March 7 at the Bellevue Westin Hotel.

Each year, Friends of Youth provides support, shelter, homes and help to more than 4,800 youths and young adults, including those in Issaquah. The luncheon celebrates the successes of these youths while raising funds to ensure that every young person has the support he or she needs to succeed.

KIRO radio’s Dave Ross will be this year’s emcee, while Adrienne Quinn, King County Department of Community and Human Services director, will give the keynote address, and youths will share their personal stories of success. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch and the program to follow from noon to 1 p.m.

The luncheon includes a raffle with a grand prize of two free tickets from Alaska Airlines. RSVP to attend at http://bit.ly/1d89AE1 or donate to support the event at http://bit.ly/1lmynyo.
