Founder of Hilton Head’s Friends of the Children volunteer group drives fundraising for 16 years, celebrates launch of new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital
The recent groundbreaking ceremonies for the Medical University of South Carolina’s new Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital were emotional for Elizabeth Hancock. The Hilton Head Island attorney, philanthropist, wife and mother finally took some time to reflect on her contribution to the facility and its evolution. But “this milestone has so little to do with me,” Hancock says. She credits the dedicated group of women who supported her as she led the volunteer group Friends of the Children to raise awareness and money for the MUSC Children’s Hospital over the past 16 years.
