The Orange County Chapter has been supporting Childhelp and its programs in California since 1970. This long-standing chapter strives to improve the lives of the children treated in Childhelp programs by putting on 3 major fundraising events a year. These three events are the Annual Holiday Botique, Fashion Show and Lunch, and Golf Tournament. The efforts of these chapter members make a major impact in fight against child abuse and neglect.
