Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary is a diverse group of volunteers that includes all age groups; typically units include young parents and older adults. Moreover, members share something very important in common: a deep love and concern of children. Team spirit, camaraderie and fun can be found throughout the 27 auxiliary units.
The hospital auxiliary’s history goes back to 1953 – one year before the hospital opened. Today more than 1,200 volunteers support the hospital through fundraising, advocacy and education.
Membership in the Coronado unit is $50 a year. All members receive invitations to some of the most popular events in the county where they can socialize and network. They have the opportunity to attend free leadership development workshops and receive the auxiliary’s newsletter, “Chaux Talk” and online communications. They have the chance to form friendships with like-minded people that will last a lifetime and receive the benefit of fulfillment and satisfaction in knowing they are helping the children of our community.
