Mobility Concepts Installs Garaventa VPL at Historic Sunset Club in Seattle WA

SEATTLE, Dec 2018 – Mobility Concepts recently installed a new Garaventa, Genesis, VPL at the historic Sunset Club in Seattle, WA.  The Sunset Club’s history is deeply intertwined with Seattle’s own history, traditions and culture.

The Sunset Club was founded in 1913 by women from some of Seattle’s most prominent families.  Many were recent arrivals from the Northeast and Midwest who sought to replicate the elegance and culture of those more established areas of the country.

The Club was formed to “promote social and intellectual welfare of its members.”  It has accomplished this over the decades through luncheons, teas, balls, lectures, art performances and other events.  Mobility Concepts is proud to have installed this lift for the Sunset Club.
