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.

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 Memorial Volunteer Committee 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.
