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.
Pleasure Guild members make a minimum three and a half year commitment and participate in a variety of fundraising and service projects. Each woman is asked to join one of several committees that focus on a special projects. Her various talents may be used to design sets or costumes, while others for the operation and marketing of events. Members attend regularly scheduled monthly meetings.
