BBC Friday 26 January 2018 – BIMA (B.I. Museum Of Art) Update w/ Peter Raffa

Join us this rainy wet winter Friday for special guest Peter Raffa, Director of Major Gifts, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. Peter will give us an update of BIMA happenings, share some BIMA history and stories – and maybe tell a few BIMA jokes.

Peter has been a fundraising professional for over 30 years. He has held leadership positions with the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind, Northwest Kidney Centers Foundation, and the Seattle Public Library Foundation to name a few. Living on the island for over 20 years, he and his wife Christie have an adult daughter.

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!
