On the afternoon of Sunday, April 15th, the ballroom of the Hotel RL in Olympia was filled with community leaders and members of the DRC family who came together to celebrate and support the vital work of the Dispute Resolution Center. This year's theme, "Civic Harmony Starts Here", highlighted the importance of community collaboration in promoting civility and respect.
Thank You to all of our table hosts, volunteers, business partners, wine & chocolate vendors and, especially, our generous donors, who made this event a success.
