New Beginnings

Nancy Lewis & Angela Siuta-Pechin, Co-Presidents


Dear LAOG Members and Friends,


As we begin our presidency, we hope you will join us in our unwavering enthusiasm to help improve the lives of the girls in Maryvale’s care.


We look forward to this transitional year and the future of the LAOG. What was once a separate group, “The Orphanage Guild Juniors,” has joined us under one larger umbrella – the new and improved – Los Angeles Orphanage Guild. We are now a bigger, more cohesive group of women dedicated to not only raising money, but also actively participating and interacting with the girls at Maryvale.  We are inspired as more and more of our members become involved in the enrichment activities planned for the girls.


By now you should have received the “Be a Friend Annual Campaign” request.  We urge you to donate generously as the funds raised will assist us in providing a variety of fun and therapeutic activities.


The date for our annual “Be a Friend, Bring a Friend” fundraising luncheon to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills is Thursday, November 21st. Please save the date for this fun, start of the holiday season event. Get your shopping done while helping us raise money for the girls!


We are humbled to be your new Co-Presidents and look forward to energetically working with each and every one of you. We are grateful to the hard-working members of the LAOG, especially our new Board of Directors, for for their never-ending support as we take on our new responsibilities.


Working together, there is no limit to the power that we can have on improving the lives of the girls at Maryvale.


It is all about the girls!


Thank you for your support.


Nancy Lewis and Angela Siuta-Pechin
