Support our Polish Cultural Center!

GIVE BIG fundraiser is back!
This year we need your donations more than ever. All your generous donations will directly support the Polish Cultural Center. Due to Covid-19 we had to cancel all our activities including Bazaar, Pierogi Fest and dances. Restaurant and bar are also closed. These events and activities were going to support all planned renovations in our over 100 years old building.
All donations to the Polish Cultural Center fund that are processed through the Seattle Polish Foundation are tax deductible and eligible for employer matching.

Hurry up, Wednesday (May 6th) is the last day!
