For over 50 years, the guilds of CHOC Children’s have been working to raise money for the many needs of the hospitals and outpatient clinics and services. Since the first Guild was organized in 1962, these dedicated volunteers have raised over $37 million for CHOC.
The purpose of the Guilds is to raise the community’s awareness of CHOC Children’s and CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo as well as to raise much needed funds in support of CHOC’s mission to nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children.
The Guilds raise money in a variety of ways and have been active in community events since their formation including the annual CHOC/Disneyland Resort Walk. In addition, Guilds organize fund-raising events such as fashion shows, golf tournaments, dinner dances, home tours, boutiques, theme parties and other special events that appeal to their membership and constituencies.

We are a diverse group of women who build life long friendships while volunteering our time, skills and talents for CHOC. Together we have raised over $5 million dollars.
