Friends of Akron Children’s Hospital attended the annual luncheon in Naples, Florida hosted by the Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation. Guests were welcomed to the event by John Orr, Chairman of the Hospital Board of Directors, and listened to hospital updates from Akron Children’s President and CEO, Grace Wakulchik, as well from Todd Ritzman, M.D. who shared updates on the advancements in innovative orthopaedic surgery techniques.
Attendees also got to hear from the Sprouse family, formerly of the Mahoning Valley but now living in Naples. Their daughter, Taryn, was involved in an accident that required treatment from the Akron Children’s orthopedics departments in Mahoning Valley and Akron.
Philanthropic support is critical to the hospital’s mission to provide world-class care and turn no child away for any reason, including inability to pay. We are so appreciative of the opportunity to thank so many of our supporters who have made special projects possible at the hospital.
On behalf of the children and their families, thank you to everyone who attended – we are grateful for your support.
