Adaline Coffman Guild group shot“Eighty years is an absolutely amazing milestone. We are a strong group of women with a special bond and I am proud to call these guild members my friends. Over the years as our group has changed and evolved, we continue to put our heads together and push on. As a result, we just finished our best fundraising year ever! We are preparing for our next event and looking forward to having our first Zoom meeting together in May.”

3 Rivers Guild group shot“It is with great pride that the 3 Rivers Guild is celebrating 30 years of supporting Seattle Children’s! Our guild members look forward to being together again in person. Meanwhile, we enjoy staying connected by phone and through social media. In March, our in-person event was canceled due to COVID-19, so our members rallied to make donations and we’ve already raised more than $2,700! We will continue our longstanding efforts to help our children fight the fight!”

Team Rohan Guild group shot“In a world of uncertainty and physical distancing, celebrating Team Rohan Guild’s five-year anniversary means more to me than ever … it means looking back and embracing our collective efforts in raising awareness and funds for brain tumor research. It is finding moments of hope for a better outcome and, ultimately, a cure that carry us through these unprecedented times. We all can hold on to feelings of despair, fear, anxiety and grief, yet at the same time, we can experience love, joy, faith and hope. So we continue to stay focused and never lose hope.”
– Cammy Singh, president, Team Rohan Guild, Seattle. The guild was founded by Cammy and Ashish Singh in memory of their son, Rohan, who loved butterflies.
