The Children’s Burn Foundation, which provides expertise and programs to prevent pediatric burns and to heal severely burned children, will honor Lynda Wolfson Fadel at the organization’s 20th Annual Giving New Hope Benefit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday, March 10.
Fadel will receive the foundation’s Giving New Hope Award for her commitment to the foundation and community.
“Each year the foundation bestows the Giving New Hope Award to leaders within our community who have given young people hope for a better future,” said Doug Mancino, chairman of the board of trustees of the Children’s Burn Foundation and a partner with Seyfarth & Shaw. “This year, we are honored to recognize Lynda for her tireless dedication to the Children’s Burn Foundation and her devotion to our community.”
The foundation is currently funding the treatment of burned children locally, nationally and internationally. Locally, in addition to medical support, the foundation assists young survivors through its programs including teen support group, camps and emergency family assistance and child and family support groups.
