April 23, 2013

The Women’s Auxiliary Council of Nationwide Children’s Hospital is hosting an informational dessert and coffee event for prospective members at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at Brookside Golf and Country Club, 2770 West Dublin-Granville Road, Columbus, OH  43235. The event is open to the public and geared for women who are interested in learning about and involvement in the four auxiliaries of Nationwide Children’s – TWIG, Kinder Key, Pleasure Guild and the Women’s Board. All auxiliaries work throughout the year to promote, fundraise and support the hospital.

Members from each auxiliary will be present to give a brief overview of their organization and to answer any questions that potential members may have. Dessert and coffee will be served.

Women’s Auxiliaries have been at the forefront of helping Nationwide Children’s achieve its mission since the hospital began more than 120 years ago in 1892. Each year, more than 1,000 women throughout central Ohio actively participate in auxiliary events and raise millions of dollars over the years for the hospital.

Some of the major events organized by the auxiliaries each year include:

  • Professionally directed family play (2014 Shrek) – Pleasure Guild
  • Denim & Diamonds – Kinder Key
  • Junior Golf Classic – Women’s Board
  • BIA Parade of Homes – TWIG
  • Caroling for a Cause – Kinder Key
  • Pumpkinpalooza – TWIG
  • TWIG Holiday Bazaar – TWIG
  • The Memorial Tournament Women’s Division – All Auxiliaries

Kinder Key is dedicated to bringing new hope to young hearts through its support of The Heart Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Pleasure Guild supports children for whom a cure is beyond reach during a time of great need with their support of the Hospice and Palliative Care Program. The monies raised by the Women’s Board and TWIG are used wherever the need is greatest.

RSVPs are requested for the event on May 7. To RSVP, or for more information, contact Brittany Keegan in Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation at (614) 355-0854 or brittany.keegan@nationwidechildrens.org.
