Amy D'Ambra is new to the Board of Trustees of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital (LAOH), but a familiar face to the institution. She is the second of three generations of women dedicated to LAOH's mission and values.
Amy describes how her mother, the late Dr. Annette Dahlman, and a small group of women in the Palos Verdes area pooled their resources in order to "do something more," establishing Las Madrecitas, an auxiliary of The Charitable Children's Guild, the original support group of LAOH.
Dahlman and Las Madrecitas found purpose and value in their organization and learned the benefits of "charitable giving and charitable grace."
Dahlman was excited when her daughter joined Las Madrecitas in 2008, and immediately took a leadership role in the organization.
Now, Amy's daughters have become a third generation of this family volunteering time and talent - Ellie and Caroline, Las Niñas de Las Madrecitas classes of 2013 and 2015, respectively.
In her video message, Amy shares why Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital and Las Madrecitas have been important to her family for over 50 years.
