Past Community Events
March 2023 – Kindering 29th Annual Auction Gala
On March 9th, employees of Mainspring took a pause from their busy schedules to help support Kindering, a local charity dear to our hearts. Kindering embraces children with diverse abilities and their families, offering much-needed education & therapy.
Each year, members of Mainspring help with the final touches for Kindering’s annual auction. This year’s theme, ‘Lights! Cameras! Auction!’ saw us assembling packets & programs, packing items for the event, and helping finish movie-themed centerpieces for dinner. Whatever the staff needed, we were there to jump in.
We're truly grateful for the opportunity to support Kindering's annual auction endeavors. This year's event raised a remarkable $700k+ for their invaluable educational and therapy programs.
June 2022 – Mainspring Cares Day
June 3rd marked another successful day of Mainspring Cares, the all-firm volunteer program at Mainspring. Choosing a day each year to come together as a group and dedicate our time and heart is indicative of the culture at Mainspring and this year, we were fortunate to help serve three organizations in our community.
These organizations are vital to our community, and we are proud to be part of their volunteer programs and show our support.
We would like to thank each organization that allowed us to spend time with them. We look forward to the positive impacts we can make together in the future.
September 2021 - A group of Mainspringers and their families celebrated National Public Lands Day by bettering Lake Sammamish State Park in conjunction with a local cleanup event. Teams were divided into various activities including weeding, trash pickup and trail improvements for the more adventurous.
December 2019 – Five members of Mainspring Wealth Advisors staff volunteered at the Eli Creekmore branch of Childhaven, one of our favorite local organizations.
This year’s need was for patching and painting one of the classrooms. Everyone donned their painting attire and – regardless of skill level – chipped in to complete the job in a few hours.
In addition, Mainspring’s Tukwila branch participated in the Childhaven Holiday Giving Drive. We collected five $25 gift cards to local stores as well as more than 450 diapers and pull ups, and 1,148 baby wipes to be donated to needy Childhaven families.
We are always gratified to be able to contribute in the communities that we serve.

September 2019 – On Saturday, September 21st, 2019, our Mainspring team got out for a ride in the 28th Annual Bike the Bluff event in Magnolia benefiting the Catherine Blaine elementary school’s 5th-grade class. All proceeds from the event went toward their annual trip to Islandwood, an environmental science camp.
September 2019 – United Way Day of Caring
Once again, Mainspring joined forces with the United Way to participate in the 2019 Day of Caring campaign. The Day of Caring is an event that Mainspring participates in every year to team build and give back to the community. Twenty-six Mainspring employees and partners rolled up their sleeves to help at the Queen Anne Food Bank and Kindering Center. Each volunteer group took on unique jobs specifically geared toward each of the not-for-profits. The volunteers at Mainspring helped organize and clean the banquet/dining facility at The Sacred Heart of Jesus, where the Queen Anne Food Bank is housed, and unloaded and organized fresh vegetables and fruits, canned goods, and served breakfast and lunch to those in need. The group at Kindering made educational kits for students. After the kits were made, they took to the playground to spruce up the toys and clean the playground equipment. Mainspring ended the day by contributing 118 hours of volunteer time.
Please look out for the next Mainspring volunteer opportunity. We are always looking for ways to help our community and give back.

July 2019 – Annual Charity Invitational Golf Tournament
On July 22nd, Mainspring had its annual Charity Invitational Golf Tournament. Over 70 golfers participated in a “Scramble” style format to benefit Eastside Pathways. This group raised over $11,000 while enjoying the beautiful views from the Snoqualmie Ridge Golf Club. Josh Hunnex, Brett Hart, Greg Ryan and Jeff Johnson were our tournament winners, with Ed Bradley, Nate Rothbauer, Dan Sullivan and Brian Mattocks taking Second Place. The “Closest to the Pin” trophy was awarded to Brett Hart, with Josh Hunnex and Amanda Foley and Jennifer taking the men’s and women’s “Longest Drive” awards, respectively.
Eastside Pathways is a community-wide partnership of more than 60 public, private, and non-profit organizations on the Eastside that works collectively to attain better outcomes for children, from cradle to career. Mainspring has long supported their efforts and we would like to thank all our sponsors, donors and staff for making this event possible.
