We are energetic, fun loving and outgoing - an informal group who enjoy socializing while working hard to raise funds, friends and awareness for Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia. Our members mostly live in Norfolk, but we have members from Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and surrounding cities. The Magnolias have combined fundraising efforts with other organizations such as the Sertoma Club of Norfolk, Tidewater Community College and several local businesses.
