Civic Cocktail: Politics & Philanthropy
Civic Cocktail: Politics & Philanthropy
6/1/201656:58

Presidential politics and the power of philanthropy were the topics of discussion at the final Civic Cocktail of the season. Washington State GOP leaders Susan Hutchison (Chair, Washington State Republican Party) and Rob McKenna (Former state Attorney General) weighed in on the race to the White House. How will Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, and other candidates fare in our state? Then, in the midst of the region's growth and prosperity, there are great challenges. How can philanthropy address the widening disparities between the rich and the poor? Seattle Foundation CEO Tony Mestres talks about how to best channel our region's generosity. Host Joni Balter moderates the wide-ranging discussion. Civic Cocktail will return in October.
