What We're About
Stemming from an altruistic desire to directly impact the health and well-being of children near and far, The Commission has made philanthropy a deeply rooted piece of our mission. Our generous members and corporate sponsors strive to continue to strengthen the Children’s hospitals within the communities in which we live and work. The Commission has donated more than $10,000 to various charities from coast to coast since our inception.
With a special niche in healthcare design and construction, a key goal of The Commission is to create an environment where we can cultivate productive relationships with our industry peers. Using ASHE PDC and the Healthcare Design Conference as a backdrop for our gatherings, The Commission coordinates a variety of events to encourage member participation and industry outreach.
Whether it’s golf, dinner, or some other form of social outing, The Commission puts great emphasis on developing relationships that extend far beyond the office. Our members have found organic mentoring relationships within our group, creating opportunities for both personal and professional growth.
Who We Are
In recent years, The Commission found it’s real calling with the help of a little dog named Cheech and his little owner, Peter Flach. We were awed by their generosity toward the many Children’s Hospitals they visited, and we wanted to participate. In 2016, with a small but meaningful donation to Rady Children’s Hospital, The Commission made it part of our mission to GIVE BACK at each event. And give back we have. With each subsequent event, we have carried on Cheech’s (RIP) calling by raising and donating more and more each year.
As The Commission nears its ten year anniversary, we can say – without equivocation – that many lucky souls have had the honor of participating in the events, and many benefactors have helped along the way. To all of you, we simply say “Thank You!”

ASHE PDC | March, 2018
Following a very successful event at ASHE PDC in Phoenix, Arizona, the Commission was able to make a $7,000 donation to the Phoenix Children's Hospital - our largest donation to date! Thank you again to all of our sponsors for making this happen!
Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children
HCD | November, 2017
On the heels of our Golf Tournament at Orange County National during the 2017 Healthcare Design Conference in Orlando, Florida, the Commission was proud to present a check in the amount of $5,100 to the Orlando Health Foundation to benefit the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children! This is one of our largest donations to date, and it would not have been possible without our member support. Thank you to all those who played and contributed to this great cause!
Various Children's Hospitals
ASHE PDC | March, 2017
With a successful turnout by The Commission at the 2016 ASHE PDC event, $3,000 was donated equally to three great foundations: Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. These generous donations would not have been possible without the support and participation from The Commission members in this year’s ASHE PDC Golf Tournament.
