Emerging Leaders for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (ELC) engages business professionals and community volunteers in their 30s and early 40s in the mission and vision of Children’s to raise funds and awareness for the organization.
ELC focuses on group strategy toward a defined purpose, develops fundraising and advocacy skills, promotes leadership development and provides a networking forum. Regular business meetings, educational sessions with Trustees and executives, volunteer engagement with patients, and member socials make for an exciting Children’s experience for ELC members.
The Scrubs Party
Each spring, ELC hosts its signature fundraising event, the Scrubs Party, to support a program at Children’s selected by the group. The 2016 Scrubs Party in March raised more than $234,000 for the Center for Advanced Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation. In past years, ELC has raised significant funds for the Child Protection Program, ECMO Center and Neurosciences program. ELC also helped launch Children’s childhood obesity prevention campaign in metro Atlanta.
