The Elks for Children’s Hospital partnership between Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Washington State Elks Association began in 1926 and still continues today. The bond of these two entities and the care of the Elks has given hope to children in our region for more than 93 years.
The Elks for Children’s Hospital Committee is a standing committee of WSEA that has contributed more than $1 million to Seattle Children’s Hospital. We are listed as a Hero for Hope and included in the Rock Wall at Seattle Children’s main campus.
100% of funds raised through the Elks for Children’s Hospital program are donated to Seattle Children’s and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ uncompensated care program. No child is ever turned away for treatment because of lack of funds.
WSEA also participates in the Children’s Network Telethon, selling pledge cards, and assisting the Children’s Hospital Foundation whenever we can. Major Elks for Children’s Hospital events include Elks Day and ExtraLife.
You may contact the Elks for Children’s Hospital Committee chair, Jim Howes, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-779-6815.
