Guild pledges $175,000 to hospital facility
The Flintridge La Cañada Guild of Huntington Memorial Hospital kicked off its 2010-11 fundraising season by pledging $175,000 for the hospital's emergency and trauma center. Funds are designated to expansion of the center and construction of a new emergency multi-media conference room. This conference room is intended to serve as a command center for disaster/triage coordination with multiple agencies, as well as for operational and training needs.
Funds will be raised through the guild's annual Children's Horse Show held each spring at the Flintridge Riding Club. The show is the oldest, and now the only, children's Class A horse show in America, with riders coming from across the United States to compete, show their horses, and meet the requirements for later participation in Olympic trials.
