Contributors Need Answers from Allied Art Guild

Original post made by Two Very Concerned Contributors, Atherton: West Atherton, on Mar 21, 2007

A few years ago my husband and I were approached for a donation to fund the repair and restoration of the Allied Arts Guild. We discussed how much we enjoyed the beautiful plantings, the delightful shops and the wonderful restaurant at the Guild and decided to make a sizeable contribution. We were assured that this money would be well spent on the property so that it could continue to generate donations to the Children’s Hospital at Stanford for years to come. That was a much better decision, we were told, then simply contributing money for the hospital’s current needs. It made sense to us, and we definitely wanted to continue to walk in the rose gardens and eat lunch with the delightful ladies at the restaurant.
