Gifting Your Skills or Knowledge – The Koa Club Holiday Sharing Tradition

Date: December 5, 2019

The holidays are a great time to share with one another and we wanted to take this opportunity to have a festive get together “The Koa Club” style. This is an open event for members of The Koa Club plus 1 (including our male friend, colleague or loved one). The event is free for all attendees, with one caveat – each attendee must share a piece of knowledge or a skill with the other attendees. We will break into smaller groups where everyone can share their superpower skills or knowledge with their group members and we will rotate the groups throughout the evening.
We are also very excited to announce that we will have the very talented and funny, Sharon Lacey, a local Seattle motivational speaker and comedian who will be performing a stand-up comedy show for us at the holiday party to get us all in the festive mood.
It will be a fun enlightening evening, filled with surprises, laughter and good times.
- Free for members of The Koa Club.
- Free for non-members of The Koa Club.
- Event limited to 30 registered participants only.
- Event limited to persons 21 and over only.
Tasty bites, champagne and wine provided.
