Teddie Ray has been a long-time active supporter of many Orange County non-profit organizations including Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties, The Harvesters of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, the Orange County Fair and Exposition Center, the Centennial Farm Foundation, and Discovery Science Center. As a founding member of The Harvesters, Ray was event Chair of the group when it formed a partnership with KTLA Charities to present a luncheon/fashion show which has netted over $1,325,000 for the Food Bank over the past four years. Named to the Food Bank’s Board of Directors three years ago, Ray initiated a committee for the organization’s annual “Humanitarians Against Hunger” dinner which has netted more than $80,000 in the past two years. For more than ten years, Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties (PPOSBC) has relied upon Teddie Ray’s dedication and commitment. She serves on the Board of Directors and founded and chaired several successful fundraising events. In 1997, Ray created PPOSBC’s innovative annual gala event, the Haute Wired Ball, which has raised more than $600,000. Teddie Ray is a firm believer in giving back to the community. She continuously proves her commitment to our community. She is indeed the epitome of an “Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser.”
