Honoree: Bob Young

Honored by: Mission Hospital Foundation

Cause Area: Healthcare


From Rocket Launcher to volunteer of special projects for our Foundation, Bob is our man! Bob started his career launching Thor/Agena B. rockets in 1961, giving the famous 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 “blast off” count down. Now Bob “blasts off” into supporting many of our philanthropic stewardship efforts by hand addressing letters to donors, sending Birthday cards, tying blue ribbons on the many teddy bears shared with donors when hospitalized at Mission & Mission Laguna Beach, in addition to the “as needed” projects that comes with everyone’s job descriptions. Bob always comes in with a smile and is never shy when it comes to hugs! Through some of the regular projects he works on, he’s been able to identify process improvements all while building relationships with our internal team as well as with our donors. Bob mans our volunteer “headquarters” room during our signature events to ensure everyone feels welcomed and are well informed. When we turn volunteer hours into $…. In 2015 Bob has given more than $9,500 towards our foundation. When it comes to value… Bob is priceless! At Mission Hospital Foundation we embody the Spirit of Giving by building lifelong relationships with community members and raising funds to support Mission ~ Mission Laguna Beach and feel blessed to have Bob as part of our family.
