On August 1st, Harrisburg Magazine announced the results of the 2013 Simply the Best and PinnacleHealth Auxiliary has recieved the Reader's Choice Award for Themed Fundraiser!! Thank you for all who voted for our annual spring gala, Club PHantastic. This award honors the work of our volunteers and their dedication to our mission of supporting patient programs and services throughout PinnacleHealth System.
From its small beginnings in 1888, this volunteer service has grown into the PinnacleHealth Auxiliary and today serves all PinnacleHealth Hospital campuses. Supporting PinnacleHealth and area residents through scholarships and education with roots that stretch back 125 years, the PinnacleHealth Auxiliary has a long history of supporting the needs of Central Pennsylvania residents. The Auxiliary is planning an evening reception to celebrate 125 Years of Service on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at the Fredricksen Outpatient Center. More information will be announced as this celebration approaches.
Through events, the women and men of the Auxiliary volunteer their time to financially support various PinnacleHealth programs and services. Auxiliary members are devoted to furthering the system’s mission and helping to preserve the high-quality, compassionate care for which its hospitals and staff members are known.
Each year, the Auxiliary raises approximately $300,000 through the following activities:
Management of PinnacleHealth’s Gift Shops
Oversight of the Hidden Door Café and Kaleidoscope Kafé
Newborn photography services
In addition to raising funds for PinnacleHealth, the Auxiliary also provides scholarships for promising students pursing careers; educates local students through its annual Children’s Health Fair; and supports and operates the Bailey House – a “home away from home” for patients and families from outside the Harrisburg area.
