I had such a great time at the inaugural CHOC Cherishes Children Gala – a fundraiser for CHOC Children’s. It was wonderful to see so many supporters (close to 300!) I was a little star-struck by guest of honor Manny Guevara, known to his fans as Manny on the Streets on 102.7 KIIS-FM. Manny is such a cool guy and a regular visitor to the hospital. He accepted the first-ever Children’s Champion Award on behalf of KIIS-FM. As you probably know, KIIS-FM has been a long-time supporter of the hospital and played a key role in helping bring Radio Lollipop to CHOC. We are so thankful for their friendship. We are also so thankful for the support we received by everyone at the gala. An auction that evening helped to increase net proceeds to $335,000 for the night! For those of you who missed the event, stay tuned for details on next year’s gala – or you can find ways to support the hospital on our website www.choc.org.
