The Men's Guild of Children's Hospital Los Angeles was founded in 2004 and is comprised of a diverse group of men who live and work in the Greater Los Angeles region. We are committed to making a difference, no matter how small, at Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Our annual Texas Hold Em’ Poker Tournament is our primary fund raising event. Since our inception, Men’s Guild has raised over $1.5 Million for Children's Hospital Los Angeles. All of the funds raised by the Men’s Guild directly benefit the children treated at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
All funds raised by the Men’s Guild are contributed to both The Associates Endowed Chair for the Chief of the Children’s Orthopaedic Center and the Endowment for Liver and Intestinal Research.
The Associates have committed to raising $6 million for an endowed chair for both the Chief of the Children’s Orthopaedic Center and Liver and Intestinal Research. Led by David L. Skaggs, MD, MMM, the Orthopaedic Center uses the most advanced methods to treat a range of conditions, from broken bones to scoliosis, and serves the most vulnerable children in our community. Led by Rohit Kohli, MBBS, MS, the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles takes a comprehensive approach to caring for patients with a variety of intestinal, liver and nutritional disorders. The Division conducts more than 12,000 outpatient visits, and performs more than 1,900 endoscopic procedures and close to 30 lifesaving liver transplants every year.
In recognition of their generous support, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has proudly named the Associates Chair for the Chief of the Children’s Orthopaedic Center and Associates Endowment for Liver and Intestinal Research in perpetuity.
All funds raised by the Men’s Guild are contributed to the Associates Rehabilitation Center Caregiver Wing and the Associates Sarcoma Program Chair. The Rehabilitation Medicine Program is a major pediatric referral center for the most complex cases throughout Southern California and the United States. Custom designed treatment, including physical, occupational, speech, respiratory, and psychological therapies are given to each patient recovering from trauma or disease. The Associates Sarcoma Program within Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases is working to improve the outcome for children battling this aggressive form of childhood cancer.
