Compass Housing Alliance auction to honor Teresa Butz
by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

'There's No Place Like Home' Compass Housing Alliance Fundraiser
March 20
Seattle Waterfront Marriott Hotel


Compass Housing Alliance, a merger of Compass Center and LATCH, will hold its first fundraising event as a combined agency at the Seattle Waterfront Marriott Hotel, March 20.

The auction gala and dinner, "There's No Place Like Home," will feature three silent auctions, a live auction, and the opportunity to support this year's Fund-A-Need.

According to Compass Housing Alliance officials, dollars raised during the Fund-A-Need portion of the evening will go to the Teresa Butz Memorial Fund for Compass Women's Programs.

"Teresa was a valued member of the Compass Center Board of Directors, joining in the fall of 2008," said Lindsey Lund, communications coordinator for Compass Housing Alliance. "Her murder in July 2009 shocked and saddened the whole community."

Lund said Teresa "brought great energy and tremendous compassion to her work for the Compass Center, and she had planned to co-chair this year's auction."

Compass Housing Alliance officials announced that contributions to the Teresa Butz Memorial Fund "honor Teresa's energetic spirit and compassion" while "serving women who continue to struggle with poverty and homelessness on a daily basis."

The Compass Center blends compassion and caring with effective programs and unique services. The mission statement of Compass Center includes promoting dignity, self-esteem, and respect for self and others. One-on-one case management identifies the issues which lead to street life and helps each person set his or her own goals.
