Welcome to All Children's Hospital Guild Seminole/Largo Branch. This Branch is full of amazing women who share a passion for the many wonderful things All Children's Hospital accomplishes. I feel privileged to be a part of this organization and I am honored to serve as our Branch President this year.
In 1976, our Branch began by a few women holding "friendraisers" (fundraisers) for the hospital. Today, we have over 60 members consisting of young professionals, working mothers, and retired professionals dedicated to the Guild's mission. We recently reached a milestone of raising a total of one million dollars for the hospital.
Please join us in our mission: to advocate, volunteer, and fundraise for children and families of All Children's Hospital. We welcome new members and we meet on the first Wednesday of the month (August-May) at Belleview Biltmore Golf Club. Some of our planned activities this year are listed below.
Our current focus is working together with all the eight other branches to raise funds to support the hospital. We recently completed our gift to the Applied Behavior Analysis Program which provided funds and support to the children and families in the program. For the next three years, we will be working on a pledge to the Palliative Care Program. The Pediatric Palliative Care Program at All Children's Hospital will help provide a coordinated, comprehensive, and compassionate approach to caring for children with life-limiting and potentially life-threatening illnesses and injuries. The Guild's gift will create an endowment to expand and sustain the multidisciplinary Palliative Care Program.
I want to personally extend an open invitation to anyone who would like to join us or contact me if you are interested in the the Guild and our events.
