My Story: Alwyn, Ben, and Luke

Posted November 23, 2015

Our donors have incredible stories behind their family’s Market Charms or Bronze Hoofprints. We’re honored to share this story from Alwyn, who describes why she’s continuing her family legacy in Pike Place Market with two Charms dedicated to her sons:

Alwyn's sons, Ben and Luke, pose for a photo with their mom's tile in Pike Place Market.

“When I was a child, my father bought me a Pike Place Market  tile with my name inscribed on it.  He also has a tile there, as well as my uncles and late grandparents. Whenever I visit the Market and see my tile, I feel a special connection to my father, my family and the amazing Market.  I want to continue this tradition with my two sons, and so I bought each of them a Market Charm.  Now, when they visit the Market and see their names on their charms, they too will feel this connection to the family and the Market we love.”
