We are pleased to recognize the following supporters and partners in our effort to contribute to a cure in Sarah’s memory:

The Pink Bandanas Guild


The Pink Bandanas Junior Guild is a group of 12-13 year old girls who raise money for pediatric brain tumor research at Seattle Children’s Hospital. The girls started the guild in honor of their friend Sarah Hughes who lost her brave battle with a brain tumor at the age of 9. When Sarah was going through chemotherapy she always wore a Pink Bandana.

The Pink Bandanas’ main source of fundraising is selling elastic ponytail holders and headbands that they hand cut and tie. They are currently sold at 11 Seattle retail locations. They have also held bake sales and are working to come up with a big annual fundraising event. Since the guild was formed in March 2012, they have raised over $16,000. Although their mission is serious, they have found a way to keep Sarah’s infectious smile in their hearts.

Elemental Pizza

Elemental Pizza is a Seattle-based pizzeria that has a special SMH pizza to honor Sarah.

Glassy Baby

Glassy Baby is a private retailer that features handmade glass candle holders and votives. Founded by Lee Rhodes, the company donates 10% of sales to charities. Glassy Baby created a special set of votive candle holders called “Sarah’s Strength.” Sales of the set benefit the Sarah M. Hughes Foundation.
