Steelheads Announce 2023 State of The Union Gala & Fundraiser

As you may already know, the Snohomish County Football Club’s mission is to foster and develop the sport of soccer in Snohomish County and Washington State. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity organization, the club relies on support from the community in every way possible. That’s why the “State of the Union Gala” serves as both a celebration and a fundraiser. Kicking off August 26th at 6;00 PM, all proceeds will go directly towards the development of new soccer programs, the Steelheads scholarship fund, gear, uniforms, volunteers, and to keep the cost of playing FREE to all Steelheads Youth Community Academy, and Semi-Pro players in the club.

What is the Apex Culture & Arts Center?

“Known most recently as Club Broadway (which stopped operating a decade ago), it lately had been home to an off-track betting parlor in a small portion of the space as the rest sat vacant. The building is on the National Historic Register.

The building is three stories and has a “high basement”. At the time it was built in 1921, it was known as the Diamond of Everett. It had a gym and swimming pool, a dance floor, a billiard hall, and a theatre. Originally built by the Knights of Columbus as a memorial to the patriotism of 41 Knights of Columbus members who served.”

What is 1611 Steakhouse?

“16Eleven Steak Restaurant is located within APEX Art & Culture Center, Everett’s newest graffiti art museum and music venue. Some know the building as the old Masonic Temple. Surrounded by art from The DogTown Collection, you’ll enjoy this upscale steak and seafood experience crafted by Chef Joel Childs, formerly with Chef Behind the Curtain. Don’t expect the ordinary.

16Eleven Steak Restaurant is the perfect complement to the fusion between old and new.

You can make your stay at 16Eleven an experience on its own, or take the time to explore APEX and all it has to offer.
