Bob and Micki Flowers — Outstanding Philanthropists

For more than 30 years Bob and Micki Flowers have woven together public service, corporate affairs and community development with a level of success and efficacy few individuals achieve. Their efforts have touched sick children, families fighting HIV/AIDS, the homeless, public television watchers and those seeking a higher education. Bob and Micki have given their time, their money and their leadership, taking on numerous board positions with non-profits including Seattle Children's Hospital, Seattle Sports Commission, University of Washington, Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS), Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, Northwest African American Museum, Seattle Art Museum, KCTS 9 public television, and Plymouth Housing Group, among others. Micki's public face is recognized by viewers of KIRO television, where she served as anchor and reporter for more than two decades. Bob made his mark in the business world as an executive with Washington Mutual bank. "Their philanthropy over the years is a testimony to their commitment to our community," said Norman B. Rice, president and chief executive of The Seattle Foundation.
