More about CHOC Glass Slipper Award:
CHOC Children’s is for children. It is the only private, not-for-profit hospital in Orange County devoted exclusively to caring for the health and well-being of children. Every year, thousands of infants, children and young adults are cared for at CHOC Children’s, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. In addition, CHOC Children’s houses state-of-the-art research labs aimed at the prevention and treatment of childhood diseases. The demand for CHOC Children’s services continually grows, as does the cost of pediatric care.
The Glass Slipper Guild reaches out to the local community on behalf of CHOC to raise money for the hospital’s greatest needs. Their Guild is made up of approximately 125 women between the ages of 25 and 45 who live in coastal Orange County. They are a dedicated and passionate group of volunteers that have raised more than $2.5 million since 1983. For more information please visit: http://www.chocglassslipperguild.com/about.php
Scott L. Schwartz is widely known as the “Ultimate Bad Guy” from his acting career including: Ocean’s 11, 12 & 13, Starsky & Hutch, Fun With Dick And Jane, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Star Trek Voyager, and many more feature films. But this year Scott reprises his most cherished role of the “Ultimate nice guy”… Scott L. Schwartz has been visiting children’s hospitals worldwide for the past 12 years after losing his sister to lung cancer in 1998. After that he realized the value and impact in making a lasting impression on these children with cancer and how important it is to make each child feel special and cared about. Scott enjoys visiting the cancer centers and bringing what joy he can into the lives of every child he visits, they are always smiling when he leaves the rooms and usually begging him to return soon.
Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation plans to make a difference in the lives of each child in need by continuing to visit hospitals worldwide, helping East TN Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Of Orange County (CHOC), Alicia’s House Food Pantry and Toys For Tots foundation of Seal Beach.
