There are many ways to celebrate the holidays in the city, Christmas ships, Wildlanterns and soon the 29th annual Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton Grand Seattle. This tradition invites “architecture firms, skilled builders, Sheraton Grand Seattle chefs, and T1D champions” to create a truly magical gingerbread village.

What does T1D stand for? Type 1 Diabetes. This annual creative endeavour benefits the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and helps to research cures through funds raised.
