Here is a special message from the organizers of the event:
EXTRAORDINARY CARE FOR ALL KIDS
At UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, the world-renowned pediatric specialists at our Oakland and San Francisco campuses deliver hope and healing to children throughout the Bay Area and around the globe.
More than 100 years ago, our Oakland hospital was founded on the belief that all children deserve access to world-class medicine. In addition to outstanding clinical care, we address our patients’ developmental and emotional needs through programs like music therapy, art classes, therapy dog visits, massage, and much more. We also help ensure the health of our community, advocating for vulnerable children living in at-risk situations and providing early interventions for kids facing challenges like asthma, obesity, and diabetes.
Because insurance only covers a fraction of all that we do, we depend on philanthropic support to help transform children’s lives. Families come to us for compassion, innovation, and hope—and it takes generous partners like you to make that possible.

100 YEARS STRONG AND COUNTING
Back in 1912, Alameda County nurse Bertha Wright, social worker Mabel Weed, and a group of similarly civic–minded women founded the “Baby Hospital” that we know today as UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. They believed that every child – regardless of race, gender, or financial circumstance – deserved quality healthcare.
The practice of medicine has changed dramatically from when we first opened our doors, with remarkable advances in technology and improved delivery of healthcare services. Yet the moral and philosophical grounding of the founders’ mission has remained the same for every member of the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland team ever since.
We look forward to continued success, but we know we can’t do it alone. To help us provide a better future for children in the community and all over the world, we need people just like you.
