Circle of Hope Champion for Children Luncheon

CHMC’s Circle of Hope Luncheon is Success for Hope Street

On February 25, 2016, the Circle of Hope Champions for Children Luncheon raised over $305,000 with a cost ratio of only 21%.  A total of 350 guests were in attendance at the Jonathan Club to give recognition to our well-deserving 2016 Champions for Children honorees – Cathy & Steve Needleman and Raul Vargas.

100% of donations received will be used to enhance the after-school education and wellness services provided to children and families. 
At the event, our preschooler choir sang; three Hope Street youth conducted science experiments; and two college students and a mom shared their stories of the impact that Hope Street has had on their lives.  Nancy, a young mother who participates in the Family Literacy program with her son, commented “I think no other hospital has a Hope Street – but every hospital should.”

 For information about the event, please contact the CHMC Foundation  at (213) 742-5867.
