Orthopaedic Guild Holding Dinner Fundraiser

Members of La Cañada Flintridge Orthopaedic Guild (LCFOG) have curtailed many activities since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
The local volunteer group is well known for its annual Book and Author Luncheon and raising funds to support Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC).
Prior to the onset of COVID, members of the guild volunteered at OIC in Los Angeles at the welcome desk and numerous other areas. The pandemic has also caused the Book and Author Luncheon to be canceled the past two years.
However, the group continues to raise funds in other ways. Under the direction of President Marianne Jennings, the philanthropic organization continues to meet monthly with Zoom sessions rather than in-person gatherings.
“It has been a good way to safely connect with each other and discuss new fundraising ideas,” a spokeswoman said.
At a recent meeting, DeeDee Nuanes, Ways and Means co-chair, discussed a “take out meal” fundraiser at Chipotle Mexican Grill (895 Foothill Blvd., LCF) set for Wednesday, May 12. The event will be from 4-8 p.m. and LCFOG will receive 33% of the proceeds of meals ordered using the fundraiser code. The money will be donated to OIC, where doctors help children “grow well and play well.” Children are treated for any orthopaedic condition, including surgery, regardless of ability to pay at OIC.
“This fundraising offer is available to anyone who would like to support LCFOG by placing an order through the Chipotle app or on the Chipotle website,” the spokeswoman said. “You may order in person with paper or digital flyer shown to cashier when paying. You may order online on the website with fundraiser code (DQ3HCGP) for pickup at the store. You can also order by calling (818) 790-8127. This is your way to ‘cause an effect.’”
Orders are for pick-up only; delivery service is not available with this offer.
