Little Mermaid Guild

The Little Mermaid Guild, charter in 1963, reaches out to North Orange County communities to raise money for the hospital’s greatest needs. As members, we encourage community support and interest in the work of CHOC and to assist the hospital through contributions of service and fundraising. Every year thousands of children are cared for at CHOC Children’s, and each year we hear more and more stories of how the hospital has touched the lives of patients, families, and friends. Annual events include Chili at the Beach and CHOC Walk in the Park.

Thank you for supporting the Little Mermaid Guild and CHOC Children’s.

We are friends with a common purpose, working together to fulfill a dream of Life, Hope and Love for the children of Orange County. Our motto is get involved, make friends, and make a difference.
