Valiant Women of Mission Hospital raises more than $200,000 to support Women's Services

Mission Hospital physicians and nurses walked the runway showcasing spring designs from the retailers at The Shops at Mission, the event’s Presenting Sponsor.

Valiant Women of Mission Hospital celebrated women and celebrated life at the 21st Annual Valiant Women Luncheon and Fashion Show on April 21 at the beautiful Monarch Beach Resort. The funds generated by the event will support Valiant Women’s bold commitment to raise more than $1.6 million over the next five years.

In addition to their continued support for Mission Women's Wellness Center and nursing scholarships, Valiant Women is raising funds to purchase a mobile 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography unit and da Vinci operating bed for women’s surgeries, and to support the current renovation of the hospital’s Labor and Delivery Unit.

One of the highlights of the event is always the dynamic team of Mission Hospital physicians and nurses who serve as fashion models, showcasing spring designs from retailers at The Shops at Mission Viejo. This year the retailers included Banana Republic, Brighton, Chico’s, lululemon, Macy’s, Soma, Swiss Watch Gallery, Tommy Bahama and White House | Black Market. Hair and makeup styling were provided by Toni&Guy and MAC.

The event was made possible through the generous support of Presenting Sponsor - The Shops at Mission Viejo and Valiant Sponsors - Golden State Foods and Mark and Ginny Wetterau, Kasdan Lippsmith, Webber and Turner LLP and Western Digital and the Grace-Camp Family.
