Seattle Children’s Research Institute offers unique Seattle experience for $1 million

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Seattle Children’s is taking part in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Holiday Campaign and, more specifically, is one of eight hospitals featured in an Ultimate Giving Guide (items with a price tag of $1 million to $12 million).

Imagine a dream day in Seattle.  It starts with breakfast high atop the Space Needle. Experience shoe shopping with Blake Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom, at their flagship store and join Costco co-founder Jim Sinegal for a hot dog at Costco Store #1.

Feeling a little fatigued?  That’s nothing a little caffeine can’t cure, so you’ll taste coffee with Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz.

Want a taste of the arts?  You’ll tour the new Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum with world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly and dine at one of world-renowned chef and James Beard award winner Tom Douglas’ restaurants.

You’ll also be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, one of the top pediatric research centers in the United States.

This Seattle Landmarks and Legends Tour for two will be awarded to a generous individual who donates $1 million to Seattle Children’s Research Institute, as part of the GiveMiracles 2012 holiday campaign.

GiveMiracles is a program sponsored by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to helping sick and injured children by raising funds for 170 hospitals across North America.
