What a crowd! We were thrilled to be joined by more than 800 of you last night at the second annual GeekWire Gala at McCaw Hall. Thanks to everyone who attended this one-of-a-kind event.
We recognized our Newsmakers of the Year for 2012 and, with your help, raised more than $32,000 for Seattle nonprofit Vittana in their fight against youth poverty. We’ll have more details coming up later today, but we wanted to start by sharing scenes from the event.
A big thanks to our sponsors for making the GeekWire Gala possible: Filter, Microsoft Outlook.com, MailChimp, Knoll, Flinn Ferguson, Microsoft User Research, Side Car, Sprig Health, Splunk, Weber Shandwick, PaperG, McAdams Wright Ragen, Deloitte Digital, SEOmoz, and Vittana.
Here’s a gallery of pictures below, by photographer Karen Ducey. We’ve also uploaded the photos to an album to our Facebook page for easy tagging and sharing.
