The funds will be donated to the hospital for uncompensated care, meaning families will be able to obtain quality healthcare for their children without worrying about paying for the services.

Marques Mar talked about spending
his childhood in the hospital

Guest speaker Marques Mar spoke about his experiences at the hospital as a heart patient from the age of 4 days old. He was born with a severe heart defect and has had 3 open heart surgeries, 3 pacemakers and will have more procedures in the future. He is now 14 years old and starting 9th grade at Issaquah High School.

Minions came to visit the crowd

This group of seventeen enthusiastic girls ranges in age from 11 to 17 years old. They attend Shoreline and Seattle area schools. Over the last 8 years, the Guild has raised over $55,000. 

The Guild is still accepting donations via Paypal on their website.
