34th Annual Hutch Holiday Gala Raises More Than $7 Million For Cancer Research
Date:12/6/2009

ther Center researchers are now expanding clinical trials that use T cell therapy to treat advanced tumors.

"We are fortunate that our guests know the power of private support in the fight against cancer," Yee said. "Proceeds from tonight's Gala challenge and auction will help us advance all we've done in the lab - moving it into the clinic to help patients," he said.

Gala patrons also bid on exclusive auction packages including a trip to the Big Apple for the Tony Awards, $11,000.; a trip to French Polynesia to view a total solar eclipse, $14,000.; and an exclusive private tasting and dinner for 12 at Long Shadows and Corliss wineries in Walla Walla, $22,000.

The grand finale was the "Diamond Dash" - a raffle for a 30 second shopping spree at Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler's store in downtown Seattle. Sue Hansen held the winning ticket and, strapping on a new pair of Nike Flex running shoes donated for the occasion, ran for a pair of diamond-and-peridot drop earrings. "Diamond Dash" raffle ticket sales raised $30,600.

Presented by the Grace Heffernan Arnold Guild and the Hutch Holiday Gala Board of Directors, the Hutch Holiday Gala featured live and silent auctions, an elegant dinner and entertainment with 700 in attendance. Through the years the Gala has raised more than $62 million in support of key research initiatives and patient programs at the Hutchinson Center.
