Core to ELC is the group’s signature fundraising event, The Scrubs Party. It is hosted every spring in support of a program at Children’s as voted upon by the group. The sold-out 2019 Scrubs Party presented by Rogers was a huge success, raising $648,328 for the Children’s Heart Research and Outcomes Center (HeRO). To date, ELC has raised more than $1.8 million for Children’s. In the past, ELC has funded programs for the Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Center, the Concussion Program, the Robotics Center, the Child Protection Program, the ECMO Center, and the Neurosciences Program. In addition, ELC helped launch the Children’s childhood obesity prevention campaign in metro Atlanta.
The seventh annual Scrubs Party will be held on Saturday, March 14th at The Fairmont.
