Georgia’s Daughters Rise to Fundraising Challenge
On 20th January, through a club at their school, her daughters Ariella and Mariana successfully held a charity bake sale and raised an impressive $376 for the Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital.
Ariella and Mariana, with help from other students at the Wilson High School, baked a range of delicious treats including; cookies, brownies, lemon bars and cupcakes.
Georgia said: “They set up on 2nd Street in Long Beach and were there from 9am until 1pm.”
The club, petitioned for and started by Georgia’s daughters, is called the ‘DIY Helping Hands Club’, and it is committed to helping charities by fundraising.
All of the money will be donated to the hospital, which is ‘dedicated exclusively to quality and compassionate care of kids in Long Beach and throughout the region’.
Georgia added: “Ariella and Mariana have been helping this particular hospital over the last five years.”.
“My daughters have always had a charitable side and it makes me very proud.”
About the Hospital

Only five percent of all hospitals in the nation are children’s hospitals, and often care for kids who are at their sickest or have a chronic condition.
At Miller Children’s, all of our young patients are regarded as heroes and we rely on the philanthropic community to continue to help Miller Children’s to provide life-saving care.
The Memorial Medical Center Foundation is the fundraising arm for Miller Children’s and they understand that the families of these children, their doctors, nurses and everyone else who supports them - including our philanthropic friends - are also heroes.
