Legislative Reception 2014

There was great attendance and energy at the Children's Campaign Fund Olympia Legislative Reception on February 25, 2014. There were many bipartisan conversations on how we can help our kids, and we look forward to continuing to build momentum to help make Washington an even better place for kids.

The Olympia Reception was generously hosted by our Champions for Children former legislators: Lisa Brown (3rd District), Jeralita Costa (38th District), Deborah Eddy (48th District) Phyllis Kenney (46th District), Lynn Kessler (24th District), Renee Radcliff Sinclair (21st District) and Skip Priest (30th District).

"I was thrilled to see the bipartisan presence for kids at our February Waterstreet Cafe event," says Rene Murry chair of the board for Children's Campaign Fund. "The CCF Board pulled off a lovely reception and we all appreciate the many representatives, senators, staff and lobbyists who joined us that night. Lynn Kessler's words of support that night were inspirational. We can't wait for our next event to help spread the word of the importance of electing officials that champaign kids rights in Washington."
