Scott Kingdon Memorial Guild benefiting Seattle’s Children’s Hospital
On behalf of the Scott Kingdon Memorial Guild benefiting Seattle’s Children’s Hospital we are writing to request your support for the annual Grand Clam Golf Classic, sponsored by Ivar’s. With the help of our 2017 sponsors and donors we were able to donate over $22,000 to the Pediatric Cardiac Care Unit at Children’s Hospital. We hope to match or beat that amount at the 2018 Grand Clam which will be held on Thursday, September 13th at Harbour Pointe Golf Club in Mukilteo.
A brief reason why we chose to raise funds for Seattle Children’s: Scott Kingdon was president of Ivar’s from 1986-2001. Having been born in 1949 with a critical heart condition, he received lifesaving treatment at Children’s Hospital. Because of the magnificent care he received he would live to become a father and grandfather. Along the way he worked himself up from a fish bar fry cook to president of Ivar’s restaurants. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2001. In 2004, the Scott Kingdon Memorial Guild was formed in his memory. The Grand Clam Golf Classic is our major fundraiser.
