Formed in 1964, the Women’s Board of Dayton Children's Hospital has a membership of 36 women whose major fundraising project is the biennial CHA-CHA dinner and auction. The Women’s Board administers the HELP Fund, an ongoing program that supports various projects at Dayton Children’s. The Women’s Board hosts a Careers in Health Care seminar for high school students annually and volunteers in the Schear Activity Center.
The Women’s Board has raised nearly $2.5 million for Dayton Children’s since 1964. Throughout the years, they have provided funding to renovate the NICU and the Wallace Critical Complex and purchased two new pediatric transport units. Most recently the Women's Board completed a $250,000 pledge to support the Soin Pediatric Trauma and Emergency Center renovation and expansion project.
The Women's Board of Dayton Children's Hospital is proud to announce their record breaking donation of $433,148, raised from the 2013 CHA-CHA fundraiser. The sold out event held on May 11, 2013 was a huge success allowing The Women's Board to significantly surpass their goal of $300,000 for the pediatric cancer and blood disorders endowment at Dayton Children's.
