PATRONS | Sring 2017 22 IN YOUR COMMUNITY Torrance Memorial Medical Center's Holiday Festival raised more than $1.5 million through ticket sales, a Lexus Opportunity Drawing, Holiday Boutique sales, and live and silent auction pledges. Having set a goal to transfer $12 million to the medical center in 2016, the Torrance Memorial Foundation announced at the Holiday Festival Gala dinner that the transfer was completed. Through the commu- nity's generosity, the Foundation raised nearly $17 million in 2016. Funds raised benefit the transformation of Torrance Memorial's North Patient Tower—dedicated to mother/baby postpartum, neonatal and pediatric care. Items such as a dinner and wine pairing for 10 at the Manhattan Beach Strand House's Private Wine Cellar, trips to Hawaii's Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu and The Point at Poipu Kauai, as well as a stay at a Sonoma winery for eight, set off a spirited bidding war during the event's live auction. More than 15,000 community members enjoyed the six-day event, hosted under a 30,000-square-foot tent on the Torrance Memorial campus. Festivities included a display of 36 themed, decorated trees, Lunch with Santa, two senior days and the South Bay's largest Holiday Shopping Boutique. 33rd Annual Holiday Festival Raises More Than $1.5 Million SUZY HALL, DIANE LANDON LOUIS GRAZIADIO, BETH GRAZIADIO, CRAIG QUINN, COLLEEN QUINN, GINGER BREDSEN, CHRIS BREDSEN BEV GEORGE, LINDA SMITH, MADDIE DAWSON, IRENE GOLDMAN, DAROL DRAGGOO, DEE DEE KING, BARBARA SMITH, JANICE PETROSINO, LINDA ROEHM HARV DANIELS, RUTH DANIELS, LEE REITLER, MD NANCY ROUSE, MICHAEL ROUSE RALPH SIMMONS, PRISCILLA HUNT, DIANNA SIMMONS HARVEY KUSHNER, PAT SACKS, MD
