The 552 Club, a community-based support group made up of individual volunteers and donors, is dedicated to promoting and financially supporting Hoag. As the oldest and largest of Hoag's volunteer financial support groups, the 552 Club has raised more than $40 million for Hoag since its founding in 1966.
The 552 Club encourages community members to make a long-term commitment to Hoag through ongoing financial support and by volunteering on committees and at events. 552 Club members participate in a variety of social and sporting events to raise friends and funds for Hoag including the Toshiba Classic Golf Tournament, the Movie Screening event and the Christmas Carol Ball.
Since its inception, the 552 Club has raised funds for every significant initiative undertaken by Hoag in the ensuring years. The 552 Club has had a meaningful impact on important projects such as the construction of the Patty & George Hoag Cancer Center, the expansion and renovation of the Joan & Andy Fimiano Emergency Pavilion and the renovation and opening of Hoag Hospital Irvine.
