The annual Valiant Women Luncheon and Fashion Show celebrated it's 25th year this past May with over 450 guests in attendance. Since 1996, Valiant Women has blossomed into a fundraising powerhouse, raising over $3.7 million to support Mission Hospital. These funds have invested in advanced medical and surgical technology to enhance patient care in The Birth Center and Women's Wellness Center, and to provide critical funding for nursing scholarships and the Valiant Women Nursing Endowment.

Additionally, an exciting fashion show presented by The Shops at Mission Viejo included a spirited group of Mission Hospital's exceptional physicians and nurses as models. The event also included a silent auction, fund a need and premium raffles.

At this year's luncheon, four Valiant Women Heroes were honored for inspiring the community with their skill, bravery and generosity of treasure and time. These women were selected because their deeds call us to find the hero within each of us - encouraging us to consider how and what we can give.

(L to R: Arianna Barnes, RN, BRN, PHN - Caregiver Hero; Michelle Lether - Grateful Patient Hero; Eric Lether; Mary Miyamoto - Volunteer Hero; and Barb Massrey - Philanthropist Hero)
