CITY NATIONAL GROVE OF ANAHEIM
2200 East Katella Avenue
More than two million kids rely on CHOC each year—and the work of caring for them never stops and never slows down. In partnership with our generous community, we create a beacon of hope so kids can return to childhood’s joy and magic.
At the 15th annual CHOC Gala on Saturday, May 18, under the stars, you’ll hear stories of perseverance, triumph and hope made possible by the generosity of our donors and sponsors.
The CHOC Gala provides heartfelt help and hope for sick and injured children and families, even when they can’t pay for treatment or care. We care. Because of the community’s groundswell of kindness, our patients know they never walk alone on their medical journeys. That’s powerful.
A three-time GRAMMY® Award winner, Gwen Stefani has achieved global success as a singer/songwriter, performer, charismatic frontwoman of No Doubt, and as a multi-platinum solo artist.
Stefani is a trend-setting music and fashion icon with an impressive array of honors: four MTV Video Music Awards, two Billboard Awards, an American Music Award, and a Brit Award. To date, she’s sold more than 60 million units worldwide, and over ten billion streams, including her debut solo album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The four-times platinum album delivered the hit singles “Rich Girl,” “What You Waiting For?” and the No. 1 hit “Hollaback Girl.”
Her sophomore album, The Sweet Escape, featured the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single “Wind It Up” and the unforgettable anthem “The Sweet Escape.” Her critically praised latest album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and includes her powerful No. 1 single “Used to Love You.”
In 2020, Stefani had two No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with husband Blake Shelton, “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere.” Stefani released the new song “True Babe” in June ahead of a series of major festival performances in for the U.K. and Europe this summer.
Before the music there was makeup. Stefani’s passion for makeup was integral in the launch of her beauty brand GXVE in early 2022. The clean, high-performance cosmetics collection is inspired by Stefani’s iconic looks and created for the community of makeup lovers who find their inspiration, individuality and self-expression through artistry.
One of pop culture’s most magnetic style icons, Stefani is one of the first artists to brilliantly merge music stardom into a series of global lifestyle brands including her fashion-forward clothing line, L.A.M.B., sister label Harajuku Lovers and her eyewear line gx by Gwen Stefani.
Stefani continues to make giving back a focus in her life supporting several charities and foundations.

“Dr. Andrew Shulman [rheumatology] is probably the best doctor my child has seen. He does not rush. He sits and talks to us. He listens. We are blessed to have him take care of our child.”
“From the staff in the emergency department, from admitting, all the way to the operating room—everybody was wonderful. All the nurses on the floor were very attentive and very, very helpful, making my child feel very at ease… I know the hospital is not always a very happy place to be, but everybody that we have encountered in our stay made it such a great experience.”
“Our job is for the kids not to know they’re in therapy—to make it fun and enjoyable. We help them figure out how to cope, adjust and thrive. We can’t change what happened to them, but we really influence how they work through their condition.”
