Guild Association Annual Meeting and Luncheon

The Seattle Children's Hospital Guild Association Annual Meeting will be held on April 22nd at the Westin Seattle. Please join Seattle Children's supporters from around the state for a celebration of guild contributions to the hospital.

Two of the speakers treated Katie when she was a patient. One of them is renowned cardiac surgeon Gordon Cohen, who took the tumor out of Katie's heart.

Registration & Displays begin at 10:oo A.M.
The Meeting & Luncheon begin at 11:30 A.M.

We would love to see as many of our guild members at the meeting as possible. If you are a member, you should have received an invitation by now that contains a place to request your seating. Feel free to request to sit with your fellow guild members, if you would like that. I hope to see you there!

S.C.O.R.E. Cards are Here!

Our S.C.O.R.E. cards have arrived! I wrote about this fundraising guild, the Seattle Children's Oncology Research Enterprise, and their wonderful cards, here. The ones that we ordered for the guild are here; if you would like to have one, please leave a message here (or email me) with your address, and I will send one to you.

I have also made business cards for our guild, if anyone would like to have some to hand out to friends, family and interested acquaintances.

Thank you, Sara, at the We Keep S.C.O.R.E. Guild!

facebook: 96 New Fans

Our first week on facebook yielded 96 fans!
That's outstanding!

Thank you to all who have become our fans. Please keep spreading the word, so that more people will know about us and what we are doing, and invite your friends to join us!

We would love to welcome new members, as well as those who are not "joiners," who may just want to knit, crochet, sew or make fleece blankets on their own to donate to Seattle Children's Hospital, or through our guild. The most important thing is bringing comfort to patients!

I've been making "business cards" for our guild. I am going to be speaking at a conference in Indianapolis in a couple of weeks, and have been invited to bring information about the guild. I think these cards will be simple and clear. They have our guild's name, address, and a photo on the front, and a brief paragraph explaining who we are and what we do on the back. If you would like to have some of these cards to hand out to acquaintances and friends, please leave a comment here.
