City Year Seattle: 2016 Ripples of Hope

Frequently Asked Questions 

What should I wear to Ripples of Hope? 

  • Ripples of Hope is a celebratory and festive event. This year, we are calling our attire “Ballpark Cocktail”. Come dressed to impress! This is an open air event and there will be heaters on the field next to tables if needed. However, we suggest bringing a coat or scarf to be safe. There is no need for umbrellas or rain jackets, as the roof will be closed on Safeco if it is raining.
  • We challenge everyone to get in the spirit of cheering on City Year by wearing red. Whether it is a red dress, shirt, pocket square, or tie we hope you get in the spirit!
  • Please check out our Pinterest board for attire suggestions.
