HomeStreet Bank donated $5,000 to FUSION, which provides transitional housing for homeless families. Franciscan Health System, principal sponsor for the fundraiser, recently donated $10,000.

FUSION (Friends United to Shelter the Indigent, Oppressed and Needy) will hold a Moulin Rouge theme art soiree from 3 to 9 p.m. Aug. 1 at the Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way. Capturing the fun and romance of turn-of-the-century Paris, the event will feature an art walk, entertainment, live and silent auctions, and raffle for a seven-day ocean cruise for two. Catered appetizers, wine, beer and espresso will be served.

Tickets are $60 online at or by calling (253) 839-5212. Tickets are $70 at the door. The 2012 goal is to raise $125,000.
