The Altadena Guild of Huntington Memorial Hospital (Guild) is thrilled to announce the return of its annual Home & Garden Tour, Festival de Mendocino Lane, on Sunday, May 1, 2022!

This highly anticipated community event is the Guild’s 69th annual home tour. With your participation, we look forward to continuing our generous support of Huntington Hospital and Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI). Since the Guild’s inception in 1951, we have donated over $2,000,000 to the hospital and HMRI.

Proceeds from Festival de Mendocino Lane help fund employee scholarships and also support the Constance G. Zahorik Appearance Center at the hospital, which assists cancer patients in dealing with the cosmetic side effects of treatment. Also, the Guild has pledged $100,000 to the hospital’s new Cardiac Care Center for our community. Home tour donations in 2022 will allow us to complete our remaining pledge balance.

This event also supports HMRI, internationally known for its research into neurological disease, cancer, and the vascular system. HMRI’s researchers work to uncover solutions to daunting healthcare challenges, improving the quality of life for us all.

We invite you to support this important community event. A Patron Donation Form will be available in February. To ensure that your donation is recognized in the Home Tour Program, please complete the online form and credit card payment by Friday, April 15th, 2022.

It’s time to celebrate and support these two invaluable resources in our community – Huntington Hospital and HMRI – and we thank you in advance for your generous sponsorship. Please contact us with questions.

The Guild was founded February 14, 1951, to support the work of the hospital. The first benefit was a tour of three houses in February 1952 with net proceeds of $428 given to help furnish offices of a newly established research facility, the Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI). Now in its 70th year, the Altadena Guild has raised millions of dollars for HMRI and Huntington Hospital.

At the Hospital, the Guild underwrites employee scholarships and also supports the Constance G. Zahorik Appearance Center which benefits cancer patients. Guild members also recorded thousands of volunteer hours at the Hospital last year. And the Guild recently made a $100,000 commitment over five years for the Hospital’s new Cardiac and Vascular Center. To learn more about HH, please click here.


For over six decades, HMRI has been making biochemical discoveries that have set new precedents in the medical knowledge across the nation and around the world. Thanks to HMRI we live in a world with seat belts, the hydrocephalus shunt, advanced imaging, and many advances in diagnosis and treatment of breast, colon and prostate cancers, stroke, heart disease, epilepsy, deafness, liver diseases, migraine headaches, sleep apnea, and brain diseases including Parkinsons and Alzheimers.
