When & Where
The Grace Heffernan Arnold Guild is named for and honors civic leader, Grace Heffernan Arnold, a tireless philanthropist in the Seattle community who died of cancer in 1960 at the age of 62. In 1975, the Grace Heffernan Arnold Guild was formed to honor her memory. Beginning as a small dinner party, the Guild’s efforts slowly evolved into what is today the Hutch Holiday Gala. It was one of the first guilds to raise funds for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
The mission of the Arnold Guild is to assist the fundraising efforts of the Hutchinson Center by coordinating the successful Hutch Holiday Gala. The goals of the Arnold Guild are to have fun, meet the financial goals of the Guild, and to promote awareness of the Hutchinson Center and its goal to eliminate cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death.
More than 850 business and community leaders attend the Gala. To date, the event has raised more than $81.4 million to benefit cancer research at the Hutchinson Center.
