October 2014: CHILD Founder Presented with Lifetime Achievement Award

Trina Westerlund, Lifetime Achievement Award

Trina Westerlund, CHILD’s Founder, was joined by her family and CHILD friends when she received a Lifetime Achievement Award on October 21st at the third annual Light a Fire Awards Dinner sponsored by Seattle Met magazine and Canlis Restaurant in partnership with the Seattle Foundation.

As stated by Mark Canlis, “The work of this year's winners reaches some of the oldest and youngest in our community and affects those from all walks of life. Many do it with little budget and staff, but with determination and dedication, their creativity and commitment remind us that anyone—even just one person—can made a difference.” We couldn’t agree more, and congratulate our Founder for this well-deserved recognition.
