The Whittier Chapter fundraises to financially support our partner philanthropies and our scholarship fund. Each year our Chapter comes together to host over 700 guests at our annual “Wish Upon a Star” Benefit in November at the Anaheim Hilton. It takes endless hours of organization to collect auction items, solicit donations, obtain sponsorships, and sell advertisements but each Patroness and Ticktocker is dedicated to making this event a success each year. This past November we raised over $60,000.00 for our eighteen philanthropies and scholarship fund. As a result we were able to distribute over $40,000.00 to our philanthropies to support their critical community programs.
In addition, we distribute another $15,000.00 in college scholarships each April for non-NCL high school girls and women who will be attending college and who share our passion and dedication for community service.
One scholarship recipient with Lupus was worried that she would not be able to afford college, said, “Because of people like you, I get to make my dreams a reality and I cannot thank you enough for that. Thank you for easing my family’s financial burden. This scholarship will go a long way in helping me with my future endeavors.”
