11th Annual Tl’aneq’ Gala and Art Auction

Eleventh Annual Tl'aneq' Benefit Dinner & Auction

April 13, 2019 • Reception begins at 5pm • Dinner served at 6pm

Please mark your calendars for the event of the year! The Northwest Indian College Foundation is excited to invite you to join us for the 11th annual Tl’aneq’ Cultural Arts Auction and Gala at the Silver Reef Casino. Enjoy an evening of award winning art, cultural performances, and fabulous food.

Tl’aneq’ (tl-ah-nook) cultural arts gala raises money in support of student success programs and scholarships at Northwest Indian College. NWIC, a fully accredited college, plays a vital role in the community by providing ‘place-based’ education with a focus on indigenous values of learning, fused with contemporary education. Our students come here from all walks of life, representing 130 different Tribes, and graduate with the skills and knowledge to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Our vision for education at Northwest Indian College is fostering Native student success, which is based on deeply-held beliefs about identity, relationships and stewardship. The Lummi value of “lengesot” means that we watch out for ourselves and love and take care of one another in our community. In the spirit of “lengesot”, I invite you to become a sponsor in support of higher education for Native students. We are pleased to offer several sponsorship options on the attached form. There is a saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”, and together we are supporting the leaders of tomorrow. Please join us for our momentous 11th annual Tl’aneq’ celebration!
