Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and concerns, we have made the difficult decision to hold a virtual online event. Seattle Children's Hospital Uncompensated Care and Autism Center need your help even more than ever so please make plans to join us for an entertaining and inspiring presentation with a live auction, patient stories and musical entertainment. Silent auction items, raffles, and trees will be part of the event before and after the live auction. There will be no charge to register for the online event.
Our guild members are working hard in several ways to create a unique, special experience while raising funds to continue to help the families at Seattle Children's and the Autism Center. Beautiful and one-of-a-kind trees are being created, auction items are being collected, and new features will be offered that will allow more flexibility and more participation while raising funds to help families and children with health challenges. Check our website , Facebook page and Instagram to stay informed.

The Seattle Festival of Trees Guild Members
Hello! We are the Cuzcueta family of Seattle. And we have two amazing little twin girls who are on the Autism Spectrum. Though the last few years have been very hard on this journey, we have been working to give our girls the best quality of life with the amazing resources and help from Seattle Children’s Hospital and Autism Center.
Thanks to the amazing help we receive we have seen growth and look forward to a brighter future. We are able to enjoy life a little more each day because of Seattle Children's, and Children's can support families like mine because of the support from events like the Seattle Festival of Trees.
I can’t wait to share our story with you all in person at this year's Festival of Trees Gala on November 23, and share just how much your help impacts our daily life.
Sponsorships Still Needed
The Seattle Festival of Trees Gala would not be possible without event and tree sponsors, and we are grateful to those who have committed already. This year our goal is $120,000 and we are only about halfway there. We need several companies or individuals to sponsor the event at $20,000, $15,000, $10,000, or $5,000. A $3,000 sponsorship will put your name on one of the beautiful, unique, designer trees displayed at the Seattle Fairmont Olympic Hotel at the event and through the holiday season.
Watch for your invitation in September, and mark your calendars for the annual gala on November 23, 2019 at the Fairmont, and the free Celebration on Sunday, November 24.
We look forward to seeing you in November, and thank you in advance for your support!
