The Kent Guild has been raising funds for Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Uncompensated Care Program for over 90 years. With nearly 100 members we have raised over $500,000.
The Uncompensated Care Program at Seattle Children’s eases the financial burden to families for care and treatment costs that go beyond what insurance will cover.
The Kent Guild also provides funds to support important research for cancer and other life-altering diseases in children.
Our guild members meet monthly to plan upcoming fundraising events. The two largest annual events are an Artisans’ Festival in November and the Fashion Show/Luncheon in April, both of which are held at Meridian Valley Country Club in Kent.
