A Message from Lois Augustine
Dear Guild Members and Friends, Fiscal year 2006 is officially over, and we can all celebrate our accomplishments. I am happy to report that the Foundation had a banner year, raising over 13 million. And, the guilds played a significant part in making this the best year in the history of the Foundation.
The guilds really have stepped up their efforts?making larger commitments, taking on more projects and programs, and purchasing much-needed equipment. Due to your hard work, we were able to transfer more than $805,000 to the hospital. The grand total raised was $1.1 million, bringing the total dollars raised by the guilds since their inception to $27,439,370. Now that?s an accomplishment to be proud of!
I would like to commend all of the guild members and thank the 2007 presidents for their commitment and leadership. It is an honor to work with such a wonderful group of women and great ambassadors for CHOC. I also would like to welcome the new and returning guild presidents and look forward to working with you and the new boards.
Next year promises to be a very exciting one for the guilds; Pat and I will be spending more time supporting your efforts.
Our motto for this year is ?through teamwork all things are possible,? and Pat and I will be looking to you for ideas to make us a stronger team.
I wish you all a great and relaxing summer. See you in September.
