You’re Invited!

Our Tuxes & Trains 2022 gala fundraiser is all about Generation Transit.

This year, we’re celebrating the historic Move Ahead Washington and its transformative Youth Ride Free program that is making public transit free for 1.4 million Washingtonians 18 and under.

Join us at Seattle’s iconic MoPOP museum as we come together to celebrate this exciting new era in Washington State transportation. Network with changemakers, transit advocates, and industry leaders from across our state. This is your once-in-a-year opportunity to show up and show out for Transportation Choices.

Don’t miss out on the party of the year!

WHEN: Saturday, October 1, 2022, 6:30-10:00 p.m. PST    WHERE: MoPOP museum located at 325 5th Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

This year’s venue — an immersive pop culture experience

We chose Seattle’s iconic Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) as the setting for this year’s event because of its recognition of game-changing shifts in our culture. The main event – including our Hall of Fame awards, DJ, live visualist, and featured program – will be held in the Sky Church venue with its breathtaking 33’ x 60’ HD LED screen. This year’s event is cocktail-party style, with a short program. Guests will have access to many of the current exhibits, including Ruth E. Carter’s Afrofuturism in Costume Design.
