Allied Arts Guild gives $110,000 to hospital

 

The Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary recently donated $110,000 to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. The auxiliary owns and operates the Allied Arts Guild complex in Menlo Park and runs it for the benefit of Lucile Packard Hospital.

"The auxiliary is extremely proud to be able to donate such a sum of money during such a difficult economic time," says Jackie Holmkvist, 2009 president of the Allied Guild Auxiliary.

The auxiliary raises money for the hospital through public events, such as the Harvest Festival, and private events, including weddings and business meetings. It also raises money by renting artists' shops and studios located at the complex, as well as through sales at the Artisan Shop, which is operated by the auxiliary. It also hosts Tally Ho, a gala fundraiser held each fall.

Allied Arts is located at 75 Arbor Road in Menlo Park.
