Cheers to 20 Years:

Cure for Mito Auction and Dinner

The Mito Guild is so pleased to be hosting our annual fundraiser once again with an in-person event at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, WA on Saturday, October 8, 2022. Event details can be found here.

We cannot believe that we are coming together to celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for 20 years to one day find a cure for mito! This journey would not be possible without the continued support of our dream team of doctors, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Research Institute and all of our amazing supporters.

Please consider joining us for this very special 20-year celebration! This is your chance to enjoy an evening out with friends in a beautiful setting with a wide variety of beverages and fabulous food provided by the talented chefs at Willows Lodge. The evening will include a silent auction and cocktail reception, and a three-course dinner, along with wines provided by JM Cellars. Throughout the dinner we will share stories and updates from our mito community and have a Raise the Paddle to continue to support our amazing team of researchers and doctors!

The evening will begin at 5:00 pm and registration for this special celebration is now open.

Following on the success of last year’s virtual event at JM Cellars (thanks to our hosts John and Peggy Bigelow) and knowing that some people want to support our guild but are unable to do so in person, we will be conducting our auction online and we will be streaming a portion of the live event. Check back over the summer for more details on how to attend remotely.

In addition to attending our event, there are other ways you can support the guild. Opportunities exist to be a sponsor for this very special event or please consider being a donor.

Thank you for your support of our Mito Cocktail Party this year.  For additional information, please Diane Nielsen at
