Events and Projects
The Women's Auxiliary is a group of philanthropic leaders who carry out their mission by raising funds to support high need areas of the hospital through several annual fundraising projects and signature events. Additionally, Auxiliary members volunteer countless hours within the hospital providing support and encouragement to our patient families and to our staff.
Boo Yard Sign Challenge
The Boo Yard Sign Challenge, sponsored by Neighborhood Credit Union, takes simple neighborhood trickery to a community fundraiser. BOO your friends and neighbors by secretly leaving the sign in their yards and Halloween treats at their doorsteps without them seeing you. The goal is to have a yard sign on every lawn in your neighborhood!
For every sign purchased, a child at Children's Health will receive a special Halloween treat, and all proceeds go toward patient programs and services to make life better for children. Email email@example.com for more information.
Breakfast with Santa Spectacular
The Women’s Auxiliary to Children’s Medical Center Dallas continues to build upon the cherished holiday tradition, Breakfast with Santa Spectacular. While we cannot come together in person for our event this December, we are excited to share with you a new and reimagined Santa Claus experience presented by NorthPark Center and benefiting Children’s Health. This year, children of all ages will have the opportunity to visit with the iconic NorthPark Santa through interactive virtual visits taking place from Nov. 27 through Dec. 23, 2020, featuring a private conversation with Santa live from his cozy home at the North Pole.
For more information or if you have any questions, please contact A Season of Giving Co-Chairs Andrea Nayfa and Aphrodite Paulos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Change for Children's
Change for Children’s is a simple but powerful program that supports Children's Health, teaches our children the importance of giving back to their community and heightens their awareness of the needs of others.
Each year, the Women's Auxiliary to Children's teams up with community schools and organizations to promote the Change for Children's programs and coordinates a fundraising campaign in the Spring. As a part of this campaign, Auxiliary volunteers work with Children's Health to identify a funding priority and then provide students official Change for Children's boxes encouraging them to come up with creative ways to collect change from family, friends and neighbors.
