Hutch Holiday Gala

A Sparkling Evening of Science and Celebration

The Hutch Holiday Gala is an elegant black-tie event that brings our community together for fantastic live music, a silent auction, an extraordinary dinner, entertainment, and plenty of dancing. 

Event Details

Join us December 7!

The 44th annual Hutch Holiday Gala will be held Saturday, December 7, 2019 at the Sheraton Grand Seattle. The Gala is the single largest fundraiser benefiting research at Fred Hutch. This black-tie event features extravagant live and silent auctions, an elegant dinner, live music and dancing.

Thanks to an extraordinary $5 million challenge from J. Orin Edson and his family, we are halfway to our goal of raising $10 million. With your generous gift, combined with theirs, our scientists can take more risks with a greater chance of reward — and speed the pace of cures. Together, we will create even more reasons to celebrate: healthy days, milestones with loved ones, and our remarkable community.

Please join us in supporting cures.
