Une Soiree de Jazz dans le Jardin! 

The PinnacleHealth Auxiliary and, our Gala’s Honorary Co-Chairs, Dr. and Mrs. Larry Sollenberger ask for your support with the 17th annual Club PHantastic Spring Gala. We are delighted to announce that this year’s soirée will benefit the design of a Tranquility Garden outside the Ortenzio Cancer Center, shown in the rendering to the left provided, by H. Edward Black and Associates. Gardens have long been associated with nature’s healing abilities and the Tranquility Garden will continue the PinnacleHealth Auxiliary’s 125 years of commitment to patient and family centered care in Central Pennsylvania. Please visit our Signature Events page for more details about this special event. This year we will be able to accept reservations online until April 18th, click here to make your reservation now.

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.

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: 

  • Signature Events

  • 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.
