“The Columbia Tower Club is an inclusive exclusive community where our Members gather to celebrate, network, grow, and connect. This event is truly a celebration of our community and the diversity within. At the End of Summer Block Party, not only will you experience Executive Chef Riccardo’s best BBQ cuisine, but you also have the opportunity to connect with our Members and enjoy amazing music from Mia LJ & DJ Lace Cadence as they blend their diverse skillsets and talents to provide a unique and exciting set for those in attendance. We also love to partner with hyper-local companies in Seattle like Shugs Soda Fountain, which supports all this event stands for.
The IDEA Committee presenting the block party–standing for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Action–has helped curate an experience that embraces our cultural diversity and emphasizes how we celebrate together. At the club, we embrace fun and celebrate together–we embrace our greater Seattle community and lean into our differences and what makes us unique. At our club, Members and guests can expect exclusive and rare opportunities; this is certainly an experience you don’t want to miss!”
