Building on Past Success, Closer to Home Breakfast Moving to Bigger Venue at Convention Center

After packing Benaroya Hall’s Grand Ballroom the past two years, Bellwether’s Closer to Home Benefit Breakfast is moving to the Washington State Convention Center. This year’s breakfast is set for Wednesday, October 17th. Shirley Franklin, the former mayor of Atlanta and the first female African-American mayor of a major southern city, will give the keynote address. Today she serves as the Executive Board Chair of Purpose Built Communities, a non-profit consulting firm that works with local leaders to implement a holistic approach to revitalizing distressed neighborhoods.
