It is an event to raise money for the work of World Relief Seattle.

From our promotional information about the event. "World Relief Seattle works with the local church, the community, the U.S. Department of State, and additional organizations to help refugees resettle in Western Washington. Their goal is to aid and empower refugees in their journey of building a new life. Refugees and immigrants bravely leave behind everything familiar to seek safety, a life free from fear, and the chance for a new start. At World Relief Seattle, they come alongside these new neighbors by providing support and care through their first months and years of transition as an investment in future generations.
