Children’s Hospital Honors Darlene K. Logan and Judith Royal

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia presented Darlene K. Logan and Judith Royal with the 2012 HOPE Award for Distinguished Volunteer Service today during the Hospital’s 2nd Annual Volunteer Leadership Summit at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.

“It is with great pleasure that we honor Darlene Logan and Judith Royal with this 2012 HOPE Award for Distinguished Volunteer Service,” said Steven M. Altschuler, chief executive officer of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  “For more than a decade, Darlene and Judith have been tireless in their efforts on behalf of the Sickle Cell Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  Their dedication has made the difference in the lives of so many children with sickle cell disease.”

Together, Darlene Logan and Judith Royal have successfully co-chaired the Blue Tag Gala, the largest annual fundraiser for the Sickle Cell Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  Since its inception over ten years ago, the Blue Tag Gala has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for sickle cell treatment and research. Darlene has also served as an Ex-Officio member of the Hospital’s Board of Trustees, and both are volunteers with the Community Advocacy Committee.

In its second year, Children’s Hospital’s Volunteer Leadership Summit brings together individuals from every area of the Hospital in an unprecedented gathering of the most dedicated volunteers.  This event will educate, inspire and provide a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas with other volunteers, trustees and Hospital leadership. The day will be an inspiration to all, ultimately showing how one person can make a difference in the lives of children and their families.

Founded in 1855 as the first pediatric hospital in America, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is a non-profit children’s charity devoted to the idea that kids deserve the best possible care. Patients from all 50 states and more than 50 countries come to CHOP for family-centered medical care that is consistently ranked among the best in the United States and the world. Through its steadfast commitment to exceptional patient care, life-saving research, superior medical education and public service programs, CHOP has become one of the largest pediatric health care networks in the nation and has improved the lives of children worldwide.
