Hutch Award Luncheon Planning Committee
The Hutch Award Luncheon Planning Committee oversees efforts to raise vital funds for cancer research at Fred Hutch through the annual Hutch Award Luncheon.
The Hutch Award® was created in 1965 in honor of the late Fred Hutch, the courageous and inspirational former Major League Baseball player and manager, who died of cancer one year earlier at the age of 45.
The Hutch Award is presented each year in Seattle at the Hutch Award Luncheon, raising more than $5.4 million over the past 17 years to support this vital research.
