“We believe all children have unique needs and should grow up without illness or injury. With the support of the community and through our spirit of inquiry, we will prevent, treat, and eliminate pediatric disease.”
On November 8, 2012, Angle 33 had the honor of participating in the annual Artisan’s Festival hosted by the Kent Guild for Seattle Children’s Hospital.
The Kent Guild has a membership of 125 women, ages 20 to 90 years. The group was chartered in 1929 and has executed a number of projects in support of Seattle Children’s Hospital. The guild founded the Kent Thrift Shop as well as the Kent Guild Endowment. The goal of the endowment was to raise at least $50, 000 for uncompensated care administered to children at the hospital. By April 2006, the market value of that endowment was $91, 971.
The annual Artisan’s Festival began in 1994 and continues to be hosted at the Meridian Valley Country Club. The festival features local and regional handmade items—from jewelry to specialty food. Guests are treated to live music and can also purchase a lunch, while taking a break from shopping.
This year, the Artisan’s Festival raised $12,000 for uncompensated care, with approximately 1,000 members of the community in attendance.
Thank you to the members of the guild for inviting us to participate in this great cause. We are proud to be part of this successful event and to support the Kent Guild’s mission.
