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 awareness and funds for our organization.
ELC focuses on group strategy toward a defined purpose, develops advocacy and fundraising 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.
We are no longer accepting candidate applications for 2018 ELC membership. If you are interested in joining this dynamic group of leaders, please check back after the first of the year to apply for 2019 consideration.
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 2017 Scrubs Party in March raised nearly $255,000 for the Children’s Concussion Program. In past years, ELC has raised significant funds for the Robotics Center, Child Protection Program, ECMO Center and Neurosciences program. ELC also helped launch Children’s childhood obesity prevention campaign in metro Atlanta.
