President's Letter

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the President of the Pasadena Guild of Children's Hospital Los Angeles. The Pasadena Guild, as one of the first affiliate groups established to support CHLA, has a rich and collaborative history with the Hospital.   For nearly eighty years, the Guild has worked to raise more than forty-six million dollars for the Hospital, successfully completing nine Guild endowments and two capital campaign projects. We are inspired by knowing that our partnership with CHLA allows miracles to happen for children every day.

The Pasadena Guild is thrilled to begin funding our newest project, the Pasadena Guild's Chair in Clinical Immunology and Allergy.  The inaugural Chair holder is Dr. Ronald Ferdman, Chief of the Division of Clinical Immunology and Allergy at CHLA.  The Guild is honored to be able to support Dr. Ferdman and the innovative treatment, research, education and outreach this important Division oversees towards the care of children with allergic disease, asthma, primary immune difficiency disorders and more.

I am grateful to work with our talented and dedicated Board of Directors and the entire Pasadena Guild membership.   The Guild is a strong group of supremely capable and committed members who strive to bring hope and compassion to the young patients of Children’s Hospital and their families. I am proud that our support will allow future generations of children to live happier and healthier lives.

All the best,

Cherie Harris
