3rd Gold Plaque Presentation

It was a glorious day!

Philanthropic Wall

The Daughters of the Nile Foundation placed a third Gold Plaque on the philanthropic wall of Shriners Hospitals for Children®-Philadelphia, representing over $3 million given to support the care of children at this facility. The Foundation gratefully acknowledges an annual gift of $15,000 from the Louis Fredrick Meyer Trust which is designated for the hospital in Philadelphia. This gift, along with donations from the friends of the Foundation, made reaching the $3 million goal possible.  On hand to share in the festivities were members of the Board of Directors, Supreme Queen Suzie Schumacher and several Supreme Temple Officers, Imperial Marshal Wayne Lachut, members of the Board of Governors, members and officers of Allah Temple No. 28, friends, patients and their family members.  The staff of the hospital provided informative tours and warm hospitality.  It was the patients, however, who made the day so special.


This celebration demonstrates the commitment of the Daughters of the Nile Foundation to helping the special children treated at Shriners Hospitals for Children®.  The work done at this hospital, as well as in all Shriners Hospitals for Children®, is truly amazing. While each is unique, all of the hospitals in this system provide cutting edge care in a loving environment for children, regardless of their ability to pay.  The children of today and tomorrow appreciate your gifts to the Foundation, which has given over $50 million to Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
