We asked Property Manager Matt what he does to prepare for the holidays:

Matt 5

Matt said he thinks it’s important to take a break from all of your to-do lists and do something that makes you excited for the holiday season!

Matt suggests treating yourself to a festive showing of the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s new production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker! He said it’s a specular evening for the whole family! For a more romantic evening, Matt suggests taking a stroll with your theater date to Palace Kitchen for a cozy pre-theater dinner.

A night to submerse yourself in holiday cheer!

Giving Back with a Little Help!

The holidays are all about giving and this year our residents helped us to give in a big way! As a locally-owned private family company, we are committed to doing our part to make our community a better place. So, we partnered with Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to help ensure every child has something to unwrap this holiday season.

The best part is, with all of your help, we were quite successful at it, too!

Thank you to all of our residents, we were able to collect ten bins full of toys to donate to Toys for Tots local chapter to distribute to children in the Puget Sound area.

We are so grateful for the wonderful people who call The Century home and we wish you all the happiest of holidays
