A Night of Delights & Fundraising Gratitude

Date and Time: Saturday, November 19, 2022 - 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Let’s come together as a Seattle Unity community
to celebrate the many blessings of
autumn, our new home, and one another.

Join us for our seasonal celebration dinner and dance!



Join us for a Night of Delight and Gratitude on November 19! It’s the time of year to recognize and be filled with gratitude for our blessings (especially our new building!) and for our community’s generosity, hard work, dedication, and love which has made this possible. We celebrate our great good fortune with drinks, dinner, and dancing!

We’ll open with a cocktail hour with lively energy from Andrea Cariño’s 6-piece Brazilian music ensemble, The Rio Thing. Next, get ready for a fabulous beef brisket (or vegan, grilled portobello mushroom) dinner served in Unity Hall. We’ll move on to a live jazz band featuring our Sunday favorite, LaVon Hardison (see her evocative quote about jazz, right). Then we have dessert, an auction, and dancing to complete the evening.

We are building on the history of congregations that came before us, celebrating our prosperity and giving thanks for transformative moments in our spiritual community, and looking forward with anticipation to whatever comes next.

Tickets are $30 and are limited – we expect to sell out – so purchase yours (below) asap.



For me, nothing expresses heartbreak, elation, or love like a good jazz tune. But jazz is more to me than great music. It’s the core. The blood. The thing that beats: the heartbeat of song.
Jazz is technical excellence, beautiful lyrics, compelling solos, collaborative music-making. The improvisational, communicative qualities of jazz make it the perfect vehicle for exploring universal experiences. It’s my ideal truth-telling medium. -LaVon Hardison (photo by Lisa Hagen Glynn)
