Andersons Give $50 Million to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles New Hospital Building is Named Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion in Their Honor
PHoTo By VANEssA PrEziosE PHoTogrAPHy
hildren’s Hospital Los Angeles Board of Trustees Co-chair Marion Anderson and her husband, John E. Anderson, have made an unprecedented and transformative $50 million gift to support the new hospital building at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. In recognition of their extraordinary generosity, the doors to this new building opened in July, just weeks before John’s passing at age 94, as the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion. This gift serves as the capstone to Living Proof: the Campaign for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, which Marion has co-chaired to raise more than $1 billion in support of the hospital’s facilities, clinical care and research. “We are thrilled and thankful for Marion and John’s gift, the latest in a long line of generous support from these two leaders of the Los Angeles philanthropic community,” said Richard D. Cordova, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “Marion has been one of the key leaders of this institution for the past two decades, and the Andersons’ philanthropic support is just one aspect of how they’ve helped make us the best children’s hospital in the western United States.” The Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of the most technologically advanced health care environments for children anywhere. A model family-centered care environment, every aspect of the building was designed with children and families in mind. “We feel so fortunate to be able to make this gift to the children of Southern California and beyond,” said Marion. “Children’s Hospital Los Angeles saves lives and offers hope to tens of thousands of children and families each year. This gift is our way of saying thank you to everyone at the hospital. Their work is amazing and John and I couldn’t think of a more deserving institution.” The Anderson Pavilion was dedicated in a heartfelt ceremony attended by Children’s Hospital supporters, leadership, volunteers, staff and community leaders

on June 23. Among the many community leaders and children’s hospital representatives who spoke, Marion shared her elation at seeing the building open. “This new building is special not only because of its architectural beauty or because it houses the most advanced medical technology, but because of the children and families who will seek hope within the gentle arms of its sturdy walls,” said Marion. In addition to their steadfast care and stewardship of Children’s Hospital, the Andersons have been community supporters for many years. John was chairman of Topa Equities, Ltd., which owns more than 42 businesses involved in agriculture, insurance, real estate, wholesale beverage distribution and automotive dealerships. Marion is vice chairman of Topa Equities, Ltd., and is an active member of the University of California, Los Angeles Anderson School of Management Board of Visitors. John and Marion were life-long supporters of the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles.
Marion has served on the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Board of Trustees for 22 years. She also serves Children’s Hospital as a member of the steering committee of the New Hospital Building Campaign, the Development Advisory Campaign Cabinet and The Saban Research Institute Committee. Regarding their continued dedication to the hospital, Marion says the pleasure has been all hers. “This has been a labor of love, and I’ve had such great partners on this journey.” “Marion and John were committed to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and this campaign from day one,” said John D. “Jack” Pettker, Marion’s co-chair on the hospital’s Board of Trustees and the Living Proof Campaign. “After 22 years of service, their dedication and leadership is still evident with this most extraordinary gift. It’s been such a pleasure to partner with her and to witness the passion that she and John shared for this great hospital.”
Dollars raised and designated for the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion as of August 31, 2011

Living Proof: The Campaign for Children’s Hospital
n 2003, it was only a dream: build a state-of-the-art new hospital building, support a thriving world-class pediatric research facility and nurture and grow the outstanding clinical programs and medical specialties that are at the core of the mission of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. To make this dream come true, hospital leaders launched what would become a historic endeavor—Living Proof: The Campaign for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The campaign’s initial goal was $350 million, but by 2006, more than $500 million had been raised. Fueled by the campaign’s success and a need to raise more funds to build a world-class hospital facility, the Board of Trustees then raised the target to $750 million.
The community continued to rise to the challenge. To date, Living Proof has raised more than $1 billion—the most successful campaign in the hospital’s history and the only single campaign for a freestanding, independent children’s hospital to raise $1 billion. “To each and every person who joined us in this amazing endeavor, I say thank you,” says Richard D. Cordova, FACHE, president and CEO of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “Every day, the people at this hospital strive to create hope and build a healthier future for each child and family who comes through our doors. Because of you, that hope—and that future—are possible.”
One of the campaign’s most influential leaders has been Marion Anderson, cochair of the Board of Trustees and the Living Proof Campaign. In May, Marion and her husband, John E. Anderson, announced a $50 million transformative gift to name the new hospital building the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion. The Anderson Pavilion opened its doors on July 17. Along with so many other campaign supporters, the Andersons were inspired by the children and families of Children’s Hospital. “As a parent and grandparent, I know that when a child is sick or injured, it’s traumatic,” Marion says. “I also know that the world-class, family-centered care environment of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles wraps each child and family in a security blanket of love, hope and healing.” The completion of the Anderson Pavilion is only the latest campaign achievement. Just as important as the new building have been contributions that supported pediatric research and highly specialized clinical programs, including the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases; the Heart Institute; the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism; the Children’s Orthopaedic Center; the CHLA-USC Institute for the Developing Mind; The Vision Center; medical and nursing education and much more. In addition, $278.6 million in contributions were unrestricted gifts to support the hospital’s mission to create hope and build healthier futures. To date, more than 744,000 individual gifts have been received—an unprecedented number that represents nearly 20 percent of the population of the city of Los Angeles. “This has been a community-wide effort,” says John D. “Jack” Pettker, co-chair of the Board of Trustees and Living Proof. “The people of Los Angeles said, ‘Children’s Hospital is an important and valuable community asset, and we want to be a part of it.’ This hospital belongs to them.” Right: Board of Trustees and Living Proof Campaign Co-chairs Marion Anderson and John D. “Jack” Pettker at the structural steel “topping off” of the Marion and John E.

From the beginning, Living Proof has been the beneficiary of tremendous leadership and support. Back in 2003, Cheryl Saban, PhD, and Haim Saban stepped forward with a $40 million transformative gift to establish The Saban Research Institute of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and name The Saban Research Building. Today, The Saban Research Institute is among the largest and most productive pediatric research facilities in the United States, with 100 investigators at work on 186 laboratory studies, clinical trials and communitybased research and health services. At the time, the gift made the Sabans the largest individual donors in the hospital’s history. “The children you see in the hallways of Children’s Hospital are our future,” says Cheryl, who is an honorary trustee. “Over the years, we’ve made it loud and clear that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of the most important places to direct philanthropic dollars.” Contributions to Living Proof also have made it possible for the hospital to grow key clinical programs and attract and retain world-class physicians and scientists, explains Walter B. Rose, who co-chaired the Board of Trustees and Living Proof with Marion before retiring in 2006. The community recognized the far-reaching impact of the hospital’s mission, he adds. “If you save a child’s life, there’s a whole lifetime of payoff as that child becomes a productive member of society,” says Rose, now an honorary trustee. “That is true impact philanthropy. There’s no better way to give.”
moving forward With the opening of the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion, hospital leaders are more committed than ever to moving the hospital forward. Key priorities include growing and expanding the hospital’s research mission, continuing to attract and retain the very brightest physicians, scientists, nurses and caregivers and being a national leader in pediatric health care reform. “We are still living in difficult financial times,” Pettker notes. “The challenges continue, and as always, we can’t do it alone.” Adds Marion, “This entire campaign has been ‘Living Proof’ that together, we really can make dreams come true.”

ore than 3,000 walkers joined forces on April 30, 2011, including hospital staff, leadership, supporters and celebrities at Turn on the Lights! Walk for Kids, the kick-off event celebrating the opening of the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The event raised more than $1 million for the hospital.

The money we raised today will certainly make a tremendous difference in the lives of the children cared for by the hospital.” Proudly supported by AEG, Walk for Kids was sponsored by Disney, Starz, LLC and Wells Fargo.

$5 Million Donors a Cornerstone of the Living Proof Campaign
passion to change children’s lives for the better unites a diverse group of individuals, foundations and corporate citizens— each of whom has given $5 million or more to Living Proof: the Campaign for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “These significant gifts have helped propel our campaign forward to enhance our world-class pediatric hospital,” says Claudia Looney, senior vice president of Development. “We thank each of these visionary friends and philanthropists for sharing our dreams.” Launched in 1984, The Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program focuses its support on the “bench to bedside” process—the translation of scientific discoveries made in the laboratory to useful therapies for patients. Its seed money has enabled Children’s
Hospital investigators to attract substantial federal funding. The Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program has committed more than $10 million to support pediatric cancer research at Children’ Hospital Los Angeles during the Living Proof Campaign. “By advancing the early-stage investigations of innovative scientists, we are able to jump-start promising new treatments and cures for children who desperately need them,” says Joyce Bogart Trabulus, program co-founder and a member of the hospital’s Board of Trustees. “We’re proud to partner with Children’s Hospital in this important mission.” The Walt Disney Company was among the early supporters of the Living Proof Campaign. Its 2007 gift of $5 million was the largest-ever

donation from a corporate foundation at the time. “At Disney, children and families are at the core of everything we do, so we are particularly proud to work with Children’s Hospital to help bring increased access to world-class pediatric health care and help build a brighter tomorrow for the children of Los Angeles,” said Jim Hunt, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Worldwide, and a Children’s Hospital trustee. The Ahmanson Foundation, which has given to Children’s Hospital for more than four decades, contributed more than $8 million to the Living Proof Campaign. “We share a commitment with Children’s Hospital to invest in a stronger community,” says William H. Ahmanson, president of The Ahmanson Foundation. “This is a place to create positive change for generations to come.” Within the Associates and Affiliates, many dedicated individuals join forces to raise funds and awareness for Children’s Hospital. “Our members have always been farsighted,” says Bonnie McClure, chairman of the Associates and Affiliates and a hospital trustee. “We firmly believe this hospital represents the future of pediatric medicine, and are deeply committed to supporting the research happening at Children’s Hospital that will shape that future.”

AEG Teams with Children’s Hospital in Philanthropic Partnership
he same company that is helping shape the future of downtown Los Angeles now is partnering with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to build healthier futures for children and families. AEG, one of the world’s leading sports and entertainment presenters, announced its new philanthropic partnership with Children’s Hospital earlier this year. When complete in 2013, the commitment

will establish AEG as one of the hospital’s top corporate contributors to the Living Proof Campaign. The company also will be recognized as a “Champion for Children,” which honors donors who have given $5 million or more in support of the newly opened Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion. “Since our global headquarters are located here in Los Angeles, we feel it is especially important that we are a part of the fabric of the local community,” explains Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of AEG. “We have always believed that our priorities should include supporting our local communities.” This spring, AEG took the lead as the hospital’s corporate partner for the Turn on the Lights! initiative, which celebrated the opening of the Anderson Pavilion with two events: Dream for Kids: the Grand Opening Gala, held at L.A. LIVE, and Turn on the Lights! Walk for Kids. “The Anderson Pavilion is a critical resource for the greater Los Angeles region,” Leiweke notes. “For a child in need of medical treatment, nothing is more critical to the quality of their life than having adequate access to a state-of-the-art hospital and exceptional medical treatment.” AEG next will be taking on a key leadership role in the Noche de Niños fundraising gala, set for fall
of 2012. In addition, the company is reaching out to its corporate partners, launching a payroll deduction program to allow employees to support the hospital and exploring the possibility of a fundraising concert. AEG develops and operates STAPLES Center, L.A. LIVE and the Home Depot Center in Carson; owns outright or owns a portion of the Los Angeles Kings, the Los Angeles Galaxy and the LA Lakers sports franchises and is developing Farmers Field, a downtown stadium, entertainment and convention center. Worldwide, it owns or is affiliated with more than 100 sports and entertainment facilities. The company’s charitable mission aims to improve the quality of life for children and families and is closely tied to its overall mission of “giving the world a reason to cheer.” Over the past decade, AEG has contributed more than $70 million to charitable, community and civic programs. “We are pleased to be working with AEG as our philanthropic partner,” says Richard D. Cordova, FACHE, president and CEO of Children’s Hospital. “AEG’s leadership will go a long way toward creating hope and building healthier futures for Los Angeles’ children and families. I can’t think of a better reason to cheer.”

Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Awards $1.15 Million to Name Cancer Clinical Trials Program at Children’s Hospital the cure rate from 10 percent to 80 percent. Still, one in five children will not survive the disease today. The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Clinical Trials Program works with pediatric cancer programs around the world to test new therapies aimed at decreasing the toxicity of cancer treatments while improving patient outcomes and survival rates. “The doctors at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles are second to none,” said Jack A. Cross, PCRF board chairman. “The list of their clinical trial programs, results, publications and successes is remarkable as is their commitment to do more, discover more and never give up. Based on the commitment of PCRF, they will be in a position to continue and expand the stunning work they are doing in alleviating suffering and saving children’s lives.” PCRF was founded in 1982 to improve the care, quality of life and survival rate of children with malignant disease. The foundation has contributed
more than $22 million—including $1.5 million to Children’s Hospital since 1998—to leading-edge pediatric cancer research across the nation. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is incredibly grateful for PCRF’s enduring support and partnership in the fight against childhood cancer. PCRF’s gift helps fund a brighter future for kids like Kali.

Siegel, director of the CCCBD. “The road from initial idea to clinical application can be a long one for new anti-cancer agents, particularly for those agents to be used for pediatric cancers. Knowing that we can rely on the support of the PCRF to move the results we get at the lab bench quickly to our patients is essential to our future success.” Research breakthroughs in the treatment of childhood cancers during the past 50 years—many pioneered at Children’s Hospital—have helped increase
