This is my third year as a member of the Glass Slipper Guild and my second year on the board. It's an exciting year for us, as we completed our million dollar endowment to the Neuroscience Institute of CHOC Children's last May! That means, this year, one of the board's duties was to decide on the Guild's new pledge commitment. We've decided to pledge another one million dollars to the hospital and have Glass Slipper Guild be the name behind a 6400 square foot, post-surgery room that is part of the new construction. This room is where all children, immediately following surgery, will come to "wake-up," eat popsicles and be visited by family before being taken to their personal rooms. I am so excited for Glass Slipper to be a part of something that will benefit all the children and families at CHOC.
Having made this commitment, the Guild has a lot of work ahead of us! I am honored to be Co-Chair of this year's Gala (our biggest annual fundraiser.) Last May, the Gala was a beautiful success - both financially and socially. The event itself was breathtaking, and by the end of the night, we had raised $320,000! You can watch a short film of the fun HERE. Kristen (my co-chair) and I are hopeful the vision we have for this year's Gala will be as beautiful, fun and financially awesome.
At Wednesday night's meeting, Kristen and I revealed this year's Gala theme to the Guild. We've been working on it since June and were so excited to finally share some of the details with everyone! Here's the storyboard I created to get everyone excited and ready to WORK.
Let the (wo)man hours begin!!
