So the final numbers are in from this year's CHOC Glass Slipper Guild Gala. With the help of our many donors, vendor partners, and generous patrons...the event grossed almost $320,000! The net proceeds allowed the Glass Slipper Guild to complete our one million dollar endowment to the Neuroscience Institute. The money is going to be used in perpetuity to fund research on curing brain tumors, advancing stem cells in the treatment of terminal disease, and funding research to discover novel treatments of hydrocephalus and cerebral palsy. With the additional net proceeds, we were hoping to donate a room in the New CHOC Tower at the cost of $50,000. Not only are we able to donate a room, but donate one at the cost of $100,000!! The Glass Slipper Guild will be the proud name behind one of the 14 Emergency Center Urgent Care/Fast Track Exam Rooms on the First Floor.
