Heart of Hoag

| May 26, 2011 | Parties

This year’s Hoag Hospital Foundation Circle 1000 Annual Celebration Brunch was a study in inspiration. Held at the Hilton Costa Mesa, the brunch—which celebrated its 24th year—benefited the Hoag Cancer Institute. Led by event chair Pame Schmider, the crowd raised more than $900,000 for Hoag, thanks to the efforts of the Founders’ Committee, including Underwriter Chair Margaret Larkin and founder Sandy Sewell. The event’s guest speaker was the author of The Middle Place, Kelly Corrigan, herself a cancer survivor and mother of two.
