Los Angeles Orphanage Guild An Affair to Remember

On Feb. 10, the Los Angeles Orphanage Guild will hold the fundraiser An Affair to Remember at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. In addition to benefiting the Maryvale Girls’ Home in Rosemead, this year’s event will celebrate the Guild’s 60th anniversary and honor Mrs. William H. Doheny.

The Doheny family and Maryvale first partnered in 1950 when Mrs. Edward L. Doheny contributed land and funds to construct a new children’s home. She was a founding member of the Los Angeles Orphanage Guild, and Mrs. William H. Doheny later served as Guild president. The Dohenys have remained active and continue to generously support Maryvale and the Guild.

Since 1952, the Los Angeles Orphanage Guild has financially supported Maryvale’s vital programs. Maryvale, founded in 1956 by the Daughters of Charity, addresses the needs of today’s children and families through services including early education, mental health services, residential services, and transitional housing. The Guild supports these and other programs that further Maryvale’s mission to help young people attain dignity, productivity, and self-esteem in an environment of stability and love.
