The King's Daughters Annual Recognition
Over 200 King’s Daughters gathered to celebrate their hard work and dedication on October 6, 2015 at the Norfolk Yacht & Country Club. The night began with a welcome from The King’s Daughters President Beth Johnson, who thanked everyone for their service and progress towards The King’s Daughter’s mission. CHKD President Jim Dahling also acknowledged the amount of volunteer hours each member has contributed. Of the 1,142 members, each person averaged almost 40 hours of volunteer service this past year which was a total of 44,699 hours and that is something to be proud of. The circles also donated 37,625 linens and gifts to patients. We also honored the Daisy Chain II circle who officially retired this past year. Thank you for 51 years of service!
The King’s Daughters are focused on raising funds to purchase a new state-of-the-art transport unit, guest speaker Karen Callaway, a member of the CHKD transport team spoke briefly about her personal experiences on the team, and how the technologically advanced transport unit was able to help save her own son’s life!
The night culminated with a farewell to one of The King’s Daughters own, Natalie Carducci. Over the past 12 years, Natalie has become a part of each and every circle and we are very sad to say goodbye. We wish Natalie the best of luck in her future endeavors and she will always have a home at The King’s Daughters.
