Dare to Dream | Junior Achievement of Washington


Date: Saturday, September 26, 2020

Time: 6-7 pm Program and Auction, with a 30-minute pre-show

Special Weeklong Virtual Auction: Wednesday, September 23 – Tuesday, September 29

For the first time in its 23-year history, we are taking Dare to Dream, our biggest fundraising event virtual.


Join us from the comfort of your home to celebrate Junior Achievement of Washington. Or… depending on your county's reopening status come September – host or join a small watch party with family, friends, or colleagues!

This won't be any ordinary Saturday in front of the TV. Our Dare to Dream theme this year is the Prohibition Era so bring on that 1920s flapper charm, fill those (not-so-illicit) martini glasses, and tune in for a night of  inspiring stories from across the state, a live auction you can participate in on your phone, and so much more! By raising a virtual paddle that evening and supporting Junior Achievement, you will be changing the lives of thousands of students across Washington state.

More details will be revealed in the coming months, but here are some sneak peeks!

  • Prior to the event, we'll have a week-long virtual silent auction filled with amazing opportunities, events, and goodies for you to bid on.
  • Opt-in to receive a "Prohibition-Era Party Pack" box filled with goodies to get you and your friends and family in the Dare to Dream spirit. Think white pearl beads and cocktail supplies to make our signature event cocktail!

We are so excited to celebrate with you and raise needed funds for the critical programs Junior Achievement is providing throughout this crisis and into tomorrow.

Let's achieve together!
