Thank you to all who attended Sound Generations Golden Gala!

On September 28, 2019, we raised $329,000 in support of aging adults and disabled persons in King County. We’d like to thank all the wonderful attendees, staff, and volunteers that made this event possible. Check out our photo album!

We want to know how we can make this event even better next year! Your feedback is important to us! Take the Golden Gala Post-Survey.


Last year, Sound Generations had over 2,100 volunteers. Our volunteers give a helping hand to those on their aging journey. We wanted to recognize some stellar individuals.
