Pleasure Guild :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Pleasure Guild

 

Pleasure Guild, an organization of women committed to raising funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital, traces its roots to the hospital’s beginnings. Pleasure Guild has raised over $4 million to aid in the mission at Nationwide Children’s. In recent years, our contribution has gone to support the Hospice and Palliative Care Program. We are committed and honored to support this effort, and these families, during a time of great need.

Projects

A highlight of Pleasure Guild membership is our focus on volunteer service at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Library Cart
Our members log over 2,000 volunteer hours each year by circulating a library cart to patients and their families. We are the only women’s auxiliary at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to have direct contact with the families we serve. The value of brightening a child’s day by reading their favorite book, or supporting a weary mother by offering her a magazine, simply cannot be measured.

the Memorial Tournament

The Women’s Division of the Memorial Tournament is the premier organization responsible for coordinating the thousands of volunteers who are essential to the success of this PGA golf tournament. Pleasure Guild joins other Nationwide Children’s Hospital Auxiliaries in being an integral part of the volunteer force. Since the tournament's inception in 1976, the Memorial Tournament volunteers have raised over $8 million for Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Pleasure Guild and Nationwide Children’s Hospital thanks you for your support!
