Hope on the Hill Guild will hold its second annual “Raise the Dough” benefit for Seattle Children’s Hospital on March 22 at Zeeks Pizza in Issaquah Highlands.
Twenty percent of the day’s sales – including take-out and delivery – will be donated to Children’s uncompensated care program. Last year, Seattle Children’s provided over $100 million in uncompensated care.
“Zeeks is the ideal partner for this event,” said Amy Trenary, Highland’s resident and event chair. “It’s a family-focused business with strong community values and has an inherent interest in Children’s causes.”
New to the event this year is an opportunity to win two tickets to a Village Theatre production of the winner’s choice. All patrons, 18 and older, can enter into the drawing.
After dining at Zeeks, plan to stop by Ben & Jerry’s in Issaquah Highlands for an ice cream treat. Owner Mark Mullet owns both businesses and is also donating the same percentage of proceeds from Ben & Jerry’s.
“Seattle Children’s saved my life,” Mullet said.
At 18 months old, Mullet suffered third-degree burns when reaching for a pot of boiling water. He spent three months healing at Seattle Children’s Hospital and attributes his recovery to the excellent medical care he received there.
Zeeks will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. A local musician will perform from 8-9:30 p.m.
Donations can be sent directly to Hope on the Hill Guild, c/o Candice Boyd, 25046 S.E. 43rd Way, Issaquah, WA 98029, or made online at www.hopeonthehillguild.org.
