Join An Auxiliary
Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary
The Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary owns and operates this historic California landmark. Located in Menlo Park, the Guild features seasonal gardens and striking Spanish Colonial architecture, and benefits our patients and families.
We are delighted to tell you that Charter Auxiliary is back in business trying a new business model—a pop up sale. We will be open to accept your donations from March 20 to May 26 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For a few months we will be at 1525 Broadway in Redwood City. This is just north of Woodside Road in the space formerly occupied by Big Lots, at the opposite end of the strip mall from CVS. We would appreciate new or gently used items in usable condition including collectibles, toys, clothing, holiday items, books, guy stuff, etc. We cannot accept children’s car seats, furniture with fabric sections, TV sets, microwaves, VCR tapes, food, or any hazardous materials.
We will have a sale weekend the beginning of June. If you would like to receive an email when details about the sale are finalized, please email us at Charter.email@example.com.
Palo Alto Auxiliary
The Palo Alto Auxiliary hosts the wonderful American Girl Doll Fashion Shows each November, drawing 1,500 guests. This Auxiliary—in existence for more than 80 years—also hosts monthly Restaurants with Heart fundraisers at local eateries.
Roth Auxiliary members staff our hospital’s cheerful Gift Shop, providing important services for patients and their families, visitors and staff—with all proceeds donated to the hospital. Artist and Roth Auxiliary member, Lynne Glendenning, comes to the Gift Shop once a month to offer free gift personalization on items of $10 or more.
San Francisco Auxiliary
The San Francisco Auxiliary hosts the annual Jewel Ball—a black-tie gala that is one of San Francisco’s longest-running charity events. Featuring cocktails, dinner, dancing, and a rousing good time, the event raises funds to support patients whose families can’t afford the full cost of their care.
San Jose Auxiliary
The San Jose Auxiliary—founded in 1942 to benefit the Stanford Convalescent Home for Children—operates the Thrift Box in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood to support our patients and their families. The Auxiliary’s most popular events are the Best of the Box events held in May and September, featuring the best clothing, antiques and collectibles, rare books, and handmade holiday items.
San Mateo-Burlingame Auxiliary
The San Mateo-Burlingame Auxiliary for Children fundraises exclusively for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and has been doing so since 1942. The highlight of each year is the annual Game Day fundraiser. This event takes place every June. The day starts at 10:00 a.m. when guests set up for bridge, mahjong, dominoes and other games. Everyone breaks for a festive lunch, social time and a raffle, and the games continue into the afternoon. In the fall the Auxiliary invites members, friends and supporters to participate in their Virtual Oktoberfest. This event has no party, but creates an opportunity to support our hospital.
