In addition to celebrating the close of the organization’s yearly fundraising campaign, 13 community leaders will be honored with Live United Awards for their efforts in promoting a healthy and safe community.
A catered dinner, refreshments, two cash bars, a live D.J., prom photos and party favors are among the plans for the event at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

“Live United Prom is an opportunity to relive the magic of prom — or experience it for the first time — as an adult,” said Development Director Jaycie Wakefield.
The theme is Under the Sea this year.
“This year we have a lot to celebrate,” said CEO Christy Smith. “We were able to not only designate funds to our 17 non-profit partners, but also award five selected nonprofits with larger impact funding to specifically support safe and affordable housing solutions, education and professional training and families.”
