Auxiliaries’ Events

Jewel Ball

This glittering black-tie gala—with cocktails, seated dinner, live and silent auctions, and dancing into the wee hours—is one of San Francisco’s longest-running charity events and benefits our hospital and patients. The 2016 Jewel Ball was held on November 5 at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco which was the 64th annual gala presented by the San Francisco Auxiliary. The gala is always held on the first Saturday of November.

Rummage Sales

The current Charter Auxiliary warehouse facility is no longer a viable site for continuing their rummage sales because of the construction by Caltrans on the 101 and Willow exit. We apologize for any inconvenience our closing down in this facility may cause donors and shoppers. We appreciate your support of our efforts to raise money for Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. Stay tuned for updates.

Best of the Box

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 beloved Pumpkin Patch Boutique event has been retired.  Now the Auxiliary’s most popular events are the Best of the Box sales held in May and September, featuring the best China, Crystal, Silver, Linens, Collectibles, Boutique, Books, Purses, Jewelry, Toys, Designer Clothes, Dolls and Art.  Two days of fun and shopping, the Best of the Box bolsters the Auxiliary’s annual contribution to the hospital, and as with the Thrift Box proceeds, all profits from this event go directly to fund uncompensated and under-compensated care at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
