The Seattle Wedding Show supports the following charitable organizations.
Anna Gottlieb, the Executive Director, saw an article in People Magazine on a rainy Seattle afternoon many years ago about the first Gilda's Club opening in New York City. She was so intrigued by the family focus and the humor that went along with a cancer support community that she went to NY to see it for herself.
She was so convinced that this wonderful program was needed in Seattle that she spent the last few years pursuing this dream. Anna says, "This has been a journey filled with much love, dedication, passion and commitment on the parts of so many. It has been a privilege and honor to play a small part of this incredible team."
Gilda's Club Seattle officially opened its red doors on March 7th 2002. We now have over 1000 members and are always growing. We welcome all those touched by cancer to come and join us.
Because family or friends with cancer have directly touched so many of us, the show has chosen to be involved with Gilda’s Club which is a nonprofit support community for people with cancer and their family and friends.
