Play to Learn Center feels ‘The Magic of Love’

Each February, the Guild sends a Valentine to the hospital’s pediatric Play to Learn Center — a donation with love from guests attending the Be Our Valentine luncheon that helps support summer camperships for children and other program needs.

This year’s event, entitled “The Magic of Love,” funded scholarships to enable children with developmental needs to experience camp for the first time.

“This annual luncheon is an opportunity for our Guild members and guests to help support a program that provides such valuable services to children and their families,” said Guild President Anita Aghajanian.

The event was chaired by Guild Board member Margo Bottcher, who wishes to thank everyone, including sponsors, vendors, Guild members and volunteers, who graciously gave of their time and support to make “The Magic of Love” a success.

Michele Boghossian was Presenting Sponsor. Table Sponsors were Adventist Health Glendale Business Development, Jenik Akopian, Hernan and Orfi Barros Foundation, Irene Bourdon, Grace Carvajal, Margaret Kaufman, Camille Levee and Alice Petrossian.

A special presentation, “Where is Love?” was read by Marina Raines, and hospital associate Gemma Bito-Onon performed special music.
