NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Circle International is proud to have donated over $20,000 to the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) via their annual "Walk in The Park" Fundraiser. CHOC is a world-class destination for children's health which many employees of Smart Circle International have close ties to.
"Having seven children and four grandchildren (so far), I have had more than my share of interaction with CHOC. My 18-month-old granddaughter is currently being treated there now. I think CHOC is the most incredible place, and my family is honored to have participated in such a great fundraising event!" – Bill Nicely, Vice President of Taxation, Smart Circle International.
Smart Circle committed to a $10,000 Bronze Sponsorship as a corporate sponsorship, but employees raised the bar, by forming a 56-member team who fundraised to match the company's donation.
"This was my 4th CHOC walk, and it's a marvelous experience every single time! I'm walked on behalf of my boyfriend's eight-year-old daughter, Eli, who has a rare genetic disorder and will never have the opportunity to walk. She visits CHOC every week for various doctor appointments and tests, so this hospital is critical to my boyfriend and his family. I'm so thankful to be a part of a company that sponsored $10,000 and whose employees came together as a team and raised an additional $10,862," shared Shana Breckenfeld, Contract Administrator at Smart Circle International.
All the funds raised will go towards health care programs, education, and research for CHOC Children's Southern California's kids' health care programs.
