86th Annual First Citizen Award Gala

Thursday, May 16, 2024 (5:30 PM - 8:30 PM) (PDT)


The First Citizen Award Committee is pleased to announce this year's recipient of the Seattle King County First Citizen Award: Tod Leiweke, President & CEO of the Seattle Kraken, whose impact on the Seattle sports world cannot be overstated. Mr. Leiweke is the driving force behind Climate Pledge Arena and its zero-carbon construction, the Community Iceplex in Northgate, and the campaign to bring the NBA back to Seattle. He has a passion for environmental sustainability and diversity and inclusion in sports.

Since its inception in 1939, the First Citizen Award, believed to be this region’s oldest such recognition, continues to celebrate community leadership, volunteerism, and public service. The civic banquet to honor the annual recipients is a not-for-profit celebration of civic engagement presented by Seattle King County REALTORS® and partners from the real estate community.
