36th Annual Festival Of Trees To Benefit Autism Center At Seattle Children’s Hospital

This holiday season the Fairmont Olympic Hotel will serve as a temporary home to twenty-one designer trees. These trees can be purchased at a minimum of $2,500 at the 36th Annual Festival of Trees Featuring the Color of Autism Gala Dinner and Auction put on by the Dr. Forrest L. Flashman Guild and the Seattle Children’s Autism Guild. All proceeds will benefit uncompensated care and the Autism Center at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

The evening will consist of themed trees, stories from Seattle Children’s Hospital patients, hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, a silent auction, a three-course meal including wine, and a live auction.

The Dr. Forrest L. Flashman Guild has raised over $11 million for uncompensated care. Raising money for uncompensated care means parents are able to focus on their child’s recovery instead of stressing over medical bills. For over a century Seattle Children’s Hospital’s mission has been to serve children regardless of their family’s ability to pay in full. Last year alone, Seattle Children’s Hospital provided over $113 million in uncompensated care.

The Seattle Children’s Autism Guild consists of parents of children with Autism, therapists, friends, and other members of the community who want to raise awareness, reach out to the community, provide support, and raise funds for the Autism Center. The Autism Center at Seattle Children’s Hospital provides a number of services, including treatment and support, to individuals with Autism and their families.

If you are unable to attend the Gala Dinner and Auction but don’t want to miss out on seeing these beautiful, theme decorated trees, the trees and inspiring stories from Children’s patients will be on display for the public in the Fairmont Olympic Hotel from November 23-December 4.
