2012 Butterfly Guild Dinner & Auction Raised More Than $70,000! 


The 2012 Butterfly Guild Dinner and Auction, held January 21, 2012, at the Brockey Center of the South Seattle Community College, was a huge success! Thank you to all our donors who helped us raise more than $70,000 for research! The Butterfly Guild will be able to fund at least two research projects thanks to our generous supporters.

Emmy-award winning Jim Dever from King 5 Evening News Magazine graciously donated his time as our energetic auctioneer.  After enjoying a silent auction with more than 100 items, guests dined on a scrumptious dinner, enjoyed wine, and bid on trips to Hawaii, a chance to be in the audience of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and even host a pizza party for 40 people! Descriptions of our Live Auction items are listed below.

Thank you again to everyone who helped make this event a great success! And thank you for giving hope to children around the country that we CAN find a cure for Shwachman Diamond Syndrome!
