Donor Perspective: John and Katherine Harnish

“When we first heard that a world class performing arts venue was being planned for Bellevue, we wanted to be involved!  After learning more about the quality of performances and the expansion of arts education opportunities, we knew that we would truly enjoy having Tateuchi Center in our own backyard and so would our whole family.  “When we first heard that a world class performing arts venue was being planned for Bellevue, we wanted to be involved!  After learning more about the quality of performances and the expansion of arts education opportunities, we knew that we would truly enjoy having Tateuchi Center in our own backyard and so would our whole family.  Our home since 1994, Bellevue now has three generations of Harnishes who are part of this wonderful community.  Our two adult children, Jennifer and John W., will reap the benefits of Tateuchi Center for many years and how rewarding it will be when our two young granddaughters, Julia and Josie, are able to enjoy using the center as well.With our gift of support, we hope our family will always feel like a tiny piece of Tateuchi Center belongs to them with all three Harnish generations having a stake in making Bellevue a world class city.”
