Pink Bandanas Guild
Raising money for pediatric brain tumor research at Seattle Children's Hospital
We are the Pink Bandanas Junior Guild, a group of 18-year-old girls who raise money for pediatric brain tumor research at Seattle Children's Hospital.
We started the guild in honor of our friend Sarah Mary Hughes who lost her brave battle with a brain tumor at the age of 9. Our name comes from the bandanas Sarah wore when she was going through chemotherapy, usually in her favorite color pink.
Our main source of fundraising is selling elastic ponytail holders that we hand cut and tie ourselves. We sell them at several retail locations in Seattle, a variety of special events and on this website!
Since forming the guild in March 2012, We have raised over $150,000! Our goal is to help other children so that they don't have to go through what Sarah and her family had to endure. Although our mission is serious, we always carry Sarah's sparkle and infectious smile with us. We are lucky to linger in her light.
