Celebrate with us in Seattle on June 1st!

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Van, Vandana, and Bill speak about opportunities for deep change and our important role as change makers. It starts at 7 p.m. at Town Hall in Seattle. A reception will follow with live music, local drinks, and decadent desserts.

Buy your tickets now, they’re going fast. And tell your friends!

$25 tickets include one year of YES! Magazine for non-subscribers. If you already subscribe to YES! Magazine, be sure to use your subscriber number as your "member code" to get the special $15 ticket price.


Can’t make it to Seattle? No problem.

We’ll be live-streaming the event on the YES! website. YES! readers across the country are inviting their friends over to watch it in real time and eat birthday cake in honor of our 15th birthday.

  • If you’re planning a party, let us know--we’d love to call you in online during the event. Contact Gretchen Wolf at gwolf[at], or call 206/842-5009, extension 201.
  • Are you taking photos of your cake? We hope you'll post them on the YES! Facebook page. 
  • If you’d like to find other YES! readers in your area, try putting out a call via Twitter (we're @yesmagazine), or on our Facebook page, which are both great places to plug in to the YES! community.

Give a gift of any size in honor of YES! Magazine’s 15th birthday. You’re the reason we’ve come this far, and you can help ensure another 15 years of YES! with a tax-deductible contribution. For a birthday gift of $50 or more, we’ll give you a thank-you gift. For a monthly gift of at least $5, the thank-you is even more enticing.

Sponsor the 15th anniversary event with a tax-deductible donation.

Sponsorship starts at $1,500. We’ll list you in the program, in the lobby, and in our online promotion. We want everyone to know that this celebration is only possible with the help of our wonderful community. Be sure to write “15th anniversary sponsor” in the comments section when you make your gift online. Or call Jess Lind-Diamond at 206/842-5009, extension 213.

If you work for a bakery or catering company that would like to sponsor the event with desserts for the reception, you can sponsor the event in that way, too. Please contact Gretchen Wolf  for more information at gwolf[at] or by calling 206/842-5009, extension 201.



If you’d like to volunteer on the day of the event, Gretchen would be happy to talk to you about that, too.
