It is my honor and privilege to serve as President of Las Madrinas in our 86th year. I cherish this organization whose dedicated members have forged a longstanding and profound legacy of philanthropic support for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. We had the pleasure of honoring 28 outstanding Debutante families at our beautiful 2018 Ball and continue to fund our current project, The Las Madrinas Endowment for the Chief of Neurology Chair and Neurological Institute Epilepsy Program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. We have committed $5 million in support to this significant capital and endowment project.
The Las Madrinas Endowment for the Chief of Neurology Chair and Neurological Institute Epilepsy Program will help insure that children in our community with neurological disorders can always count on Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for the highest quality of care: the type of care that frees a child from debilitating seizures, helps a teen with muscular dystrophy regain strength, and creates hope for patients diagnosed with a brain tumor.
I am grateful to be working with an outstanding Board of Directors and our devoted Las Madrinas membership. We look forward to recognizing and celebrating our Debutante families this year and continuing to make a difference in the lives of the children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Mrs. Kjell Nicholas Hult (Katie)
