Spotlight: CHOC Foundation Board Member
Heather Madden

As a new board member of the CHOC Foundation, Heather Madden has an ambitious mission.Her objective is to reach out to as many people in the region as possible to let them know about the wonderful things happening at CHOC—and its critical need to grow.

Heather became acquainted with CHOC as a weekly volunteer in the playroom on the oncology floor. “I am honored to be serving as an advocate for an organization as remarkable as CHOC,” Heather says. “I’m hoping to bring more visibility to the hospital, especially among the coastal communities and other regional areas that may not have had as much exposure to CHOC.”

Heather has already started making strides in her endeavor, serving as chairman of CHOC’s first-annual “CHOC Cherishes Children” gala, which will be held January 24, 2009, at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach.

“The theme for the gala is ‘Growing with Orange County.’ In 2009, CHOC will experience 250,000 patient visits; it is imperative that CHOC grows to be able to meet the demands of the rapidly growing pediatric population in the region,” Heather explains.

“I’m truly grateful for the support of the gala committee members: Christine Bren, Jennifer Burke, Monica Furman, Kathryn Glassmeyer, Lori Hirth, and David and Marsha Willis. Without their help, I would not have the pleasure of chairing this wonderful event,” Heather concludes.
