Women Supporting Women
Beauty In Grace is a women’s giving circle in south Orange County created to support women at Saddleback Medical Center. Our members demonstrate the beauty of philanthropy and carry themselves with grace to improve the health of women in our community.
We’re seeking outstanding women who share our vision and understand the power women have when we stand with each other for causes we are passionate about. We understand that as a group, we can be stronger and make a bigger impact. Together we can also build a diverse network, ranging from professionals to stay-at-home mothers, who lift each other up.
Each year we champion a new cause that affects women’s health. In our inaugural year, we raised $65,000 to fight breast cancer and helped fund a new breast MRI machine.
Last year we supported women whose babies require special attention in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). For many babies, the NICU is their first home outside of their mother’s womb. We were able to purchase NicView video-streaming equipment that allows parents and family to see their babies at all times on their smartphone or tablet.
We are asking all members to make an annual gift of $1,000. By pooling gifts of his size, the group can more substantially impact the women’s issues relevant to them.
Members gather annually at a beautiful luncheon to hear how membership gifts are touching women's lives at Saddleback Medical Center. This year’s appreciation luncheon will take place on January 24, 2019, at Shady Canyon Golf Club, and will include networking, socializing and an inspirational speaker.
