Peninsula Committee Childrens Hospital

Peninsula Committee Childrens Hospital is a non-profit organization that raises money for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. Founded in 1957 when a group of women from the South Bay area were asked to help raise money for a new recovery unit at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, the Peninsula Committee Childrens Hospital has grown to more than 170 South Bay families who volunteer all year long for the common goal of giving more to the children in Los Angeles County.
The Committee hosts three major fund raisers each year
