Light Up the Holidays

Help us make a difference!

Our annual Christmas Ship™ is a way to spread holiday cheer throughout Seattle, but it is also one of the major ways that we give back to our community. Every year a portion of ticket sales is donated to The Seattle Time's Fund For Those In Need. This year we are introducing a new donation initiative called "Light Up the Holidays", where you can make a direct impact and contribute an amount of your choice!

Since 1996, after many amazing years with this strong partnership, Argosy has since donated a total of $701,712. For the 2022 season, we have our highest goal yet of $45,000! Help us reach our donation goal by lighting up the holidays - learn more below:
