We’re excited to have Brad Goode from KOMO News join as our emcee.  A veteran, award winning anchor in the Northwest news business of 10 years, Brad is the new co-anchor of the KOMO 4 Morning News and Mid-day News.  Over the last decade Brad has developed as a passionate auctioneer and emcee and we couldn’t be happier to have him as a part of our Benefit Breakfast!
