2020 CBF thank you

Thanks to you, our donors, shoppers, and sponsors, we exceeded our fundraising goal and raised $147,523 to support our students and programs!

From October 13th to 16th, 2020, we hosted our first-ever virtual fundraiser and auction.

We celebrated youth stories, shared the perspectives of our staff and supporters,  and gave you an opportunity to invest in the futures of our students and of Hilltop Artists.

You can explore the full Celebrating Better Futures video series below which culminated with our Keynote Conversation between Executive Director Dr. Kimberly Keith and City of Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards.

Did you win an item in our Auction or purchase items through the online Shop?

Your purchase makes a difference, helping Hilltop Artists in removing barriers and giving youth tuition-free access to learning, collaboration, compassion, and much-needed inspiration.

You should have received a confirmation email with links to the next steps, including our pick-up option dates: October 20, 21, and 24.

If you can’t find your confirmation email, you can click here to sign up for a date and time to pick up your items at Jason Lee Middle School (602 North Sprague Ave Tacoma, WA). Click here for directions. 

Please remember to bring I.D. and your Auction Bid number to confirm your items.


From October 13th through the 16th, we’ll debut new videos each day featuring the perspectives and experiences of our Hilltop Artists community. Please explore the videos and share!

Special thanks to Silong Chhun who created the design collateral and videos for this year’s event.
