Pleasure Guild, whose roots can be traced to the hospital's beginning, is comprised of 60 women who are committed to raising funds for Nationwide Children's Hospital. Our goal is to give you a comprehensive overview of our organization, and to entice you to give of your time, your resources or both – all to benefit central Ohio's ONLY Hospice and Palliative Care Program, serving families in their greatest time of need! The Pleasure Guild is the oldest women's auxiliary of Nationwide Children's Hospital, dating back to 1908. The "funny name" comes from even earlier days when women provided little items or treats called "pleasures".
Pleasure Guild recently presented a check totaling $325,518.30 to Dr. Steve Allen CEO and Tim Robinson SVP and CFO of Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This donation will benefit children for whom a cure is beyond reach.
