Bartell Drugs, Seattle Gourmet Foods/Dilettante Chocolates® present $25,000 to Seattle Children’s Hospital

SEATTLE – Who doesn’t love kids and chocolate?

Bartell Drugs and Seattle Gourmet Foods/Dilettante Chocolates® recently teamed to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital Uncompensated Care Fund. During February, for each package of Dilettante Chocolates® products sold at Bartells — TruffleCremes®, Chocolate-covered fruit, caramels, and toppings—each company made a financial contribution to the fund, reaching the goal of $25,000.

The two local companies presented the check for $25,000 on March 12 to benefit Seattle Children’s vision to transform children’s health for generations to come.

“Seattle Gourmet Foods, manufacturer of Dilettante Chocolates®, was proud to support our Pacific Northwest community through this partnership with Bartell Drugs and Seattle Children’s Hospital,” says Mark S. Clark, Director, Seattle Gourmet Foods.

Brent Beebe, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Bartells, notes that “collaborative fundraising efforts are a great way for local businesses to support children in need. We were extremely happy to have partnered with Seattle Gourmet Foods to make this contribution.”

The fundraising effort by the two Northwest-owned companies reflects their long-time commitment to positively impact the lives of children and families living in the Puget Sound area.
