El Camino Hospital Foundation hosted the second annual Norma’s Literary Luncheon on February 6, 2014, a benefit for the Women's Hospital and a memorial tribute to Norma Melchor, who was a steadfast and generous supporter of El Camino Hospital for more than 50 years. Ruth Reichl, bestselling author, restaurant critic and judge on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, was the featured speaker.
Judie Wolken was the luncheon chair and Betsy Dawes was co-chair. Jack Melchor, who underwrote the event and his family were among the 163 guests who attended. Proceeds from the afternoon will be used to purchase fetal monitoring equipment for antepartum moms, special monitoring equipment for Jacuzzi births, and to bolster lactation services.
Plans are already underway for the third annual Norma’s Literary Luncheon, which will be held on February 5, 2015. Author, screenwriter and producer Delia Ephron will be the featured speaker.
