History

“The Miracle House,” a name coined for Seattle Children’s by faithful supporter and storyteller Phil Smart, Sr., was a name given to our guild as recognition of our unique history.

Traditionally, a guild’s core membership is a group of friends, co-workers or neighbors. Our guild was created by the Guild Association in response to a diverse group of people who expressed an interest in guild membership, but who did not have a specific link to an existing guild. Thus The Miracle House Guild was formed in 2000 which brought together a group of strangers from all over greater King and Pierce counties.

Now in our fourteenth year, we are a strong group of friends and one of the top 15 revenue-producing guilds. Our numbers have grown as friends of friends and members of our patient spotlight families have joined the guild. We all share an on-going commitment to supporting Seattle Children's and we are proud of the tradition we have created with our annual “Where Miracles Take Flight” auction.
