Garden Grove Mayor Bao Nguyen encourages the community to help support mental health services to youth, by attending the Lamp Lighter Guild Luncheon & Fashion Show, benefitting the new pediatric mental health unit at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). The event takes place on Monday, May 2, 2016, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Anaheim White House, 887 S. Anaheim Boulevard, Anaheim 92805. The cost is $40 per person.
“Garden Grove recognizes the importance of supporting youth in all aspects. Ensuring the mental health of our young people should be a cause that every Orange County community supports and takes part in,” says Mayor Nguyen.
In addition to dining at the award-winning Anaheim White House, the event will feature a tea-room style spring fashion show featuring designs by Draper’s & Damon’s. The fashions will be modeled by Miss California and former Miss Garden Grove, Bree Morse, along with the current Miss Garden Grove Raena Ramirez, and her court.
All proceeds will go to the Medication Room in the new Mental Health Unit at CHOC to help fulfill the Guild’s pledge of $25,000.
The Lamp Lighter Guild, located in Garden Grove, was established in 1962, by community volunteer and supporter Beverly Singer, along with Dorothy Lake, wife of Garden Grove’s first mayor, H. Louis Lake. Singer remains an active member of the Guild, along with her husband, Dr. Mel Singer, who has practiced pediatric cardiology at CHOC since it opened in 1964.
