Women’s Board of Wolfson Children’s planning events


Happy Memorial Day! Memorial Day offers a moment to pause and remember those who have died in service to our great country and way of life. For children, it brings the start of summer and a break from school. We head outside to enjoy the parks and beaches that make up our amazing community.

For me, summer is the time to look ahead and thoughtfully plan The Women’s Board’s signature events.  Our more than 400 volunteers are working diligently to prepare for the Florida Forum, our speaker’s series that kicks off in the fall, and the First Coast Design Show, an amazing weekend event focused on design and an outstanding collection of exhibitors from across the country. We are reaching out to expand our community of volunteers, donors and sponsors to support Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

Recognized among America’s Best Children's Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report year after year, Wolfson Children's Hospital of Jacksonville is the only full-service tertiary hospital for children in the region, serving North Florida, South Georgia and beyond. It is a nonprofit organization that provides care for all children, regardless of their ability to pay.

Wolfson Children’s Hospital is a remarkable care center with more than 1,507 team members working to provide optimal health for the region’s children by providing child- and family-centered care. The hospital has 273 beds and receives more than 119,642 emergency room visits each year, including the most critical child trauma cases in the region. While I hope you never need the services of Wolfson Children’s Hospital, I am thankful that we have this amazing institution working in our community. 

Enjoy your summer!
