Seen in PSBJ's Scene Section: Evergreen City Ballet

We adore the dynamic duo who grace the pages of the Puget Sound Business Journal this week: Melinda Morrison and Kevin Kaiser. Thanks to Erin Van Bronkhorst for spreading their smiles across the paper for us. Having collaborated with Morrison for years, for the last year + we’ve had the added pleasure of working with Kaiser as he's taken Evergreen City Ballet to new heights. South King County’s only professional ballet company and school is growing with leaps and bounds. Bucking the local non-profit trend ECB’s contributions, ticket sales and enrollment are all up.

Their first annual “Under the Tuscan Sun” dinner gala, pictured in the PSBJ, brought together over 100 attendees on May 16th at the Fairwood Golf & Country Club to raise funds for scholarships and ECB’s new Dance ALIVE educational outreach program. The top auction items were tickets to the Oprah show and two nights in Chicago plus an Edgar Martinez bat. Fun stuff!
