Growth - A message from Tanya Lieber

It's been a busy season for the CHOC Foundation. Last September, the Foundation hosted a grand opening event of CHOC's new Pediactic Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) to honor donors who contributed to the new units. Honorees included Josie Lee, who contributed $1.5 million to name the new PICU; the CHOC Follies, who named the Family Zone; the Padrinos, who named the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit; and many other generous donors who are committed to the mission of our organization.

Also in the fall we hosted the first annual Circle of Friends awards luncheon to recognize individuals and organizations that exemplify the ideals of philanthropy and volunteerism in service to CHOC. At the event, ‘Charley Awards’ were given – an award named in honor of Charley Hester, a dedicated philanthropist who served on various boards of directors at CHOC from 1976 – 1994.

In addition, we were recently given a $1 million endowment from Music for a Cure to fund a new music therapy program at CHOC. This gift, along with additional funding from musician Gwen Stefani, will help us create a world-class music therapy program at CHOC.

And, we are currently finishing up phase II construction of our Ambulatory Care Center, due to open this spring, which includes renovation of the existing clinic modules and support spaces.

As you can see, a lot has been going on at CHOC over the past several months. We look forward to reaching even more milestones in the coming months as we progress in our fundraising efforts.

As I walk through the halls at CHOC I am continually reminded of all of the advances that have been made possible by the generosity of our donors. Together, we can ensure that CHOC continues to provide high-quality medical care to the growing pediatric population in our region. On behalf of CHOC and the patients and families we serve, thank you!
