Win big at Broadway

In a first-of-its kind effort in the state, Tacoma's Broadway Center for the Performing Arts will launch a major fundraising raffle on New Year's Eve with a key kickoff event at the Pantages Theater.

Raffle tickets for LIVE LARGE will sell for $99 each, with the grand-prize winner becoming the owner of a new $1 million Tacoma dream home, thanks to The Commencement Condominiums.

The winner can elect instead to receive $600,000 cash. The size of the total prize pool topping $1.1 million makes this a first for any raffle in Washington.

Tribe, nonprofit begin green building 'lab'

Marine View Ventures, the economic development arm of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, and the Institute for Environmental Research and Education have unveiled plans to build the first Net Zero energy building in the state.

Dubbed a "teaching building," the facility will make as much energy as it uses, with rainwater as its sole water source -- while acting as a living laboratory for both the Tribe and the Institute.

The building differs from LEED buildings in that it will not be judged based on design, but rather on its operational results.
