We are beginning to prepare for this year’s CHOC Follies show - "The Great Chocsby!", and I am asking you to help this fantastic organization. This 23rd Edition of the CHOC Follies is one of the largest fundraisers for CHOC and over the life of the Follies we have raised over $10 million for the Children’s Foundation. The cast and crew of over one hundred community leaders spend hundreds of hours over three months in the production of the show. In addition to the time commitment, each cast member commits to a minimum of $2,500 of financial support. For me, there isn’t a more fun way to raise money for a great cause.
This will be my 13th year working with the Follies and I keep coming back and giving of my time because I continue to be touched by the good that CHOC does. As I talk to people about support, most have a personal story to tell about an experience with CHOC. They tell me how their child or a relative got such great medical and emotional care from the staff. This shows me how intertwined CHOC is with our community. By supporting CHOC we are supporting our families, our employees and our clients.
Thank you for your support. I know that there are many worthwhile organizations that you support. I hope you will be a sponsor, make a donation and buy a program ad. And I hope that you will also be able to come to the show and hear firsthand the personal stories of the good that CHOC is doing. And the show is great fun to see.
