It is my honor and privilege to serve as this year’s Las Madrinas President.  As we begin our 88th year, after an unprecedented one, our organization remains strong.  We continue to honor our traditions while focusing on our mission, growth and advancement.  Although we were not able to enjoy our annual Ball this past December, we are looking forward to this year’s 2021 Ball.  Las Madrinas will continue to fund our current project, The Las Madrinas Endowment for the Chief of Neurology Chair and the Neurological Institute Epilepsy Program.  We have committed $5 million of support for this important capital and endowment project.

The Las Madrinas Endowment for the Chief of Neurology Chair and the Neurological Institute Epilepsy Program will ensure that children in our community with a neurological disorder can always rely on Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for the highest quality of care.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with an exceptional Board of Directors and our devoted Las Madrinas membership.  We look forward to recognizing and celebrating both our 2020 and 2021 Debutante families this year and continuing to make a difference in the lives of the children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Best Regards,

Mrs. Berkeley George Harrison (Kristin)
