On Thursday, October 20, 2016, we were thrilled to see a record-breaking number of attendees at our annual wine tasting fundraiser, “Cork, Fork, and Support,” held in the gorgeous underground Melrose Market Studio on Capitol Hill.
Guests enjoyed local wine and spirits, along with passed his d’oeuvres and a table full of delectable small bites as they bid on awesome auction packages and purchased raffle tickets—all in support of local women who are undergoing treatment at the Swedish Cancer Institute for breast or gynecologic cancer.
As one of Northwest Hope and Healing’s three major annual fundraisers, this event enables us to provide these women with immediate financial assistance—funds that can be applied towards everyday living expenses such as childcare or groceries, reliable transportation and/or emergency rent. Some of these women would be unable to make an electric bill payment or even put food on the table for their children, were it not for our support.
Special Thanks to our Auction Donors:
Finerie Seattle, Ben Bridge Jeweler, Proper Picnic, and many others
Warm Thanks to our Wineries:
JM Cellars, Benziger Family Winery, Chloe Wine Collection, Concannon Vineyard, Cupcake Vineyards, and Elsom Cellars.
And More Thanks to our Caterer:
Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes

Thank you to the many, many people who made Style’16 an incredible success. We are thrilled to report that the event generated over $205,000 – a record breaking year!
This year’s attendees were treated to the sight of inspirational cancer survivors modeling beautiful fashions from local boutiques, along with handsome (and kind-hearted) firemen, not to mention a wonderful night out.
These lovely survivor-ladies and their firefighter friends had a blast getting glammed up at Ola Salon & Spa before the show, then parading their favorite fashions from Finerie Seattle, Carmilia’s, Coastal Surf Boutique, 3 Wishes Boutique, Peridot Boutique, Scotch & Soda Official Site, Via Lago, Visette Boutique, and West Seattle Runner down the catwalk.
We could not have done it without incredible community support, and we are so grateful to everyone who contributed.
Northwest Hope and Healing wishes to extend a sincere thank you to our donors, sponsors, models, boutiques, volunteers, committee members, and in-kind donors, along with deep gratitude to the volunteer planning committee for their hard work: Amy Daly-Donovan, Erin Daly, Kathy Petras, Shanti Lang, Tracey Hilton, Kimberly Law, Peggy Nelson, and Patrick Murphy.

Suggested Minimum Pledge: $100 per person
Although fundraising is not required, we urge you to gather donations to help local cancer patients. Last year this event raised more than $75,000 in financial aid for women with breast and gynecological cancer. This year, the need is even greater, and with your help, we’re hoping to DOUBLE the proceeds from last year.
It’s easy… ask ten friends to donate $10; make a $50 donation and have your employer donate; hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds, and you’ll have $100 before you know it. But don’t stop there! All donations are welcome, and the sky is the limit. So many people in our community have experienced cancer or cared for someone with cancer that they will be grateful for the chance to help if you just ask!
