Good Karma | CHOC

For the month of February, we at grit, are honored to sponsor the CHOC {children’s Hospital of Orange County} Glass Slipper Guild.

Named a Best Hospital by US News + Report, CHOC provides the ultimate in pediatric and infant care.

Regardless of a family’s ability to pay, CHOC is the only private, not-for-profit hospital in Orange County, and thus depends on the local community to raise money for rising costs in pediatric care. The Glass Slipper Guild, a volunteer group of mostly Orange County women, has helped raise over $3.7 million dollars for CHOC.

The Glass Slipper Guild is a compassionate and enthusiastic group who care deeply for the health of children; this care and energy is evident in the fundraisers they host.

The Glass Slipper Guild’s events have a reputation not just for their overwhelming charitable contributions, but also for their fun atmosphere and joyful mood. Such community favorites include the annual Bloomingdale’s Fashion Show with the Orange County Fire Department, their participation in the October Disneyland CHOC walk, and, of course, the hottest ticket in town every spring: the Glass Slipper Guild’s Annual Gala; where last year alone they grossed over $320,000, and were able to donate $100,000 for an Emergency Center Urgent Care/Fast Track Exam Room.
