A local tradition that began in 1992, the Sheraton Grand Seattle is proud to continue its support of JDRF’s Greater Northwest Chapter by hosting the 28th annual Gingerbread Village celebration. Each year, a talented team of local architects, chefs from the Sheraton Grand Seattle, and children collaborate to build elaborate gingerbread creations to raise funds in support of JDRF’s vision of a world without type 1 diabetes.
To create the event, which has raised over $1 million and is free for the public to attend, the Sheraton Grand Seattle annually donates over 8,000 volunteer hours and thousands of pounds of dough, icing and candy. The Gingerbread Village event has become a recognizable holiday tradition in Seattle and at the heart of this celebration is embracing cheer and fostering community while giving back.
