Auction Raises $475,000 for Olive Crest

KIRKLAND, Wash. — Olive Crest Homes and Services for Abused Children held its 6th annual ‘One Life at a Time” Gala Auction on March 3 at the Westin Bellevue. The 360 attendees of the spring-themed event enjoyed an evening of live and silent auctions featuring a wide variety of items, including a Harley Davidson, scooters, numerous trips to exotic locales, and artwork created by foster children served by the Bellevue-based agency.

Covestic Inc., a leading business and IT consulting company based in Kirkland, was the presenting sponsor, providing financial support for the event that raised a record $475,000 for furthering programs and services for children and their families.

Covestic CEO John Schaffer is a committed Board of Trustees member for the nonprofit which, among other services, places severely abused and neglected children in therapeutic foster care.

“The general population is relatively unaware of the crisis level our culture is experiencing with child abuse, which is why Covestic has embraced the cause," said Schaffer. "Through public awareness, we can make great strides in breaking the cycle of abuse that affects so many children.”

Olive Crest continues to promote the safety and wellness of children and families through innovative programs including specialized education, foster and adoption, family preservation, and residential homes. Olive Crest’s outreach serves California, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest. For information call 1-800-74-FOSTER or visit the Web site.
