Welcome to the Noble Viking Charities of Orange County
Viking Charities was founded over fifty-five years ago in Los Angeles when a group of men came together in good fellowship and decided to create a charity to help underprivileged children and their families. They rallied once a month at the Scandia Restaurant with Meister Ken Hanson, building traditions that still carry on today.
In 1984, Viking Hans Prager opened the The Ritz Restaurant in Newport Beach, which provided a meeting place for Vikings based in Orange County to start their own charity. A group of spirited men have come together ever since for monthly luncheons filled with friendly harassment, good food, drink, outstanding guest speakers, and serious discussion as to the best ways to help Orange County’s needy children and families. Noble Viking Charities, a California non-profit charitable corporation, became an IRC 501(c)(3) charity organization in 1999.
When you donate to Vikings Charities, you can rest assured that all funds will go straight to benefit children in need. There is no professional administrative staff and no costly overhead.

The Noble Viking Charities organization is based on two principles – the desire to have fun and the decision that funds we raise should go directly to children and families in need. We do not have dues. The only requirement for membership is a donation of $275 or more to the Christmas Food Box Stuffing event. (Each year the Vikings pack over 1,800 baskets with holiday dinner food and other necessities for needy families throughout Orange County.) In addition to this project, we also support a variety of local charities throughout the year by hosting events and meetings to raise money for disadvantaged families and children.
The Vikings meet monthly for a variety of events and lunches. On the second Tuesday of the month, the Vikings enjoy an afternoon of camaraderie while supporting local community charities. Each lunch has a guest speaker who is a key player in his field, from local community leaders to renowned sports legends. For more information, please call 818-823-3868.
Viking Song for the Beginning of Each Meeting:
Han skal leve. Han skal leve. Han skal leve. Hoyt hurra, hurra, hurra, den skal den ver bra. Hurra, hurra den skal den ver bra. Han skal leve. Han skal leve. Han skal leve. Hoyt hurra…Skal.
TRANSLATION: He shall live. He shall live. He shall live. Loud hurrah, hurrah, hurrah, this toast was very good. He shall live. He shall live. He shall live. Loud hurrah…Skal.
