January 25, 2007

Galkos Construction, Inc., a Huntington Beach-based home improvement company, recently donated $30,000 to Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), designating CHOC its charity of choice. The donation will be used to help fund a new primary care treatment room and a second CHOC Breathmobile®, a fully equipped mobile asthma treatment unit.

Frank Gialketsis, president and founder of the family-owned and operated business, says, "Galkos, our partners, and our employees are pleased to support the life-saving efforts of CHOC. It is extremely rewarding to know we are helping CHOC make a mark on the lives of the children and families in Southern California."

Galkos is already making plans to raise additional funds for CHOC by the end of this year.
