As ambassadors of Scripps Encinitas, they will raise awareness about the philanthropic needs of the nonprofit hospital and promote its innovative patient care services and programs.

In addition to joining the hospital’s community advisory board, Ecke and his family recently made a generous gift to The Campaign for Scripps Encinitas, to benefit the historic expansion of its critical care services.

Wood has served as president of the Chula Vista Chamber of Commerce, the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club and Santa Fe Irrigation District; committee member of the Rancho Santa Fe Association, the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center, the Community Center Village Presbyterian Church and Rancho Riding Club; and board member and secretary of the Horizon Church in Rancho Santa Fe.
