Thanks to all who made Guild fundraiser a success

It was a sold-out event, thanks to everyone’s efforts.

Celebrating the Guild’s 80th anniversary, our annual Christmas Luncheon and Silent Auction held on Dec. 4 was an outstanding success. The Guild sold out our new venue, The Claw, hosting 120 guests. We are thankful for their new and/or continued participation.

Raffle winners included Tracy Alexander, Laura Murphy, Connie Roseth and Colette Francel. Door prize winners were Nancy Bruennen, Karen Hahn, Patti Poe, Gerri VanBeek, Maureen Shay, Sheila Bogdon, Marsha McLean and Linda Raber.

Our goal was to have the entire event sponsored so that all proceeds would be sent to Children’s Hospital for uncompensated care. Fortunately, we achieved that goal by much-appreciated sponsorships led by Darrell and Dr. Holly Dickson’s donation of The Claw and including Fugate Ford, Enumclaw Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge, Gamblin Motors, Work Sports and Outdoors, the Puttman family, KSI Transport, American Heritage Corporation, Julie Iunker-Raymond James, Steve Rhodes Insurance and Rex Amburgey. We also wish to thank both retailers and private donors for silent auction donations.

The Guild thanked our longstanding president who stepped down last spring, Sandy Stergion, for her dedication to Children’s. The day was dedicated to four 40-plus-year members of the Guild who have passed away, three of which in 2019. Also, we were fortunate to have spent before, during and after this event with Carolee Moergeli, a 32-year member, who sadly passed away one day after.

Thank you, one and all for, your support of children’s health needs through our Guild.
