Coming this Wednesday, June 26, 2013 to The Hangar at the Orange County Fairgrounds is the 26th Annual Summer Movie Classic Event put on by the Hoag Hospital Foundation 552 Club. This event will take place at 5pm with a food tasting of more than 30 of Orange County’s finest restaurants and there will be a movie screening at 7:30pm for the movie, Casablanca. Tickets are now on sale at this website: HOAGMOVIESCREENING.
This event began back in 1988 and over the years, the event has raised over $1 million for Hoag Hospital Newport Beach and Hoag Hospital Irvine. I am all about this event considering the fact that not only is Hoag a fabulous hospital; it is my hospital that I have gone to for over 15 years! There are only the best doctors and services at Hoag! 🙂 More than 1200 guests are drawn to this event each year!
Long time hosts of this event are Jim & Patti Edwards and they are very excited to hold this event at the Orange County Fairgrounds for the first time. In the past, the event was always held at the Edwards Big Newport Cinemas. Concordia University and Hoag Hospital Foundation 552 club will be sponsoring this event. The Hoag Hospital 552 Club is a support group of individual
volunteers and donors dedicated to promoting Hoag Hospital financially. This organization has raised more than $40 million for Hoag Hospital since 1966. For more information in joining this club to support Hoag Hospital, got this link here: JOIN 552 CLUB
