I am so excited about the hopes and visions of the All Children’s Hospital Guild North Pinellas Branch for the 2016-17 year. I welcome you and encourage you to meet our members who are willing to, wholeheartedly and enthusiastically, accept the Guild’s Mission to advocate, volunteer and fundraise for children and families at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
North Pinellas is one of nine Branches of the All Children's Hospital Guild that are entering the second year of a $1,350,000 four year challenge to provide support and enhance Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Nursing Excellence Program and purchase a new state-of-the-art pediatric ambulance for Lifeline Transport Services.
In addition to our pledge support to the hospital, the North Pinellas Branch Legacy Fund, provides funds for special equipment, programs and other needs of the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care East Lake, 3850 Tampa Road, Palm Harbor. The Outpatient Care facility also serves as the location for the Branch meetings held on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 pm.
We invite you to partner with us by joining the Branch of the Guild and/or attending one of the fundraising events. In addition to the satisfaction of meaningful work, you will join with others in having a great time and meeting new friends.
This year we have two events in the planning stages:
