The Bonita/Chula Vista area has had an Auxiliary Unit for over 50 years. We have a very diverse membership ranging from young working moms to retired grandmothers and covering all walks of life, with abundant enthusiasm and energy for helping the children of “our Hospital". We welcome new members each year with a champagne and dessert evening to join us in all our endeavors to make Rady Children’s the very best it can be.
Our main fundraiser is our luncheon/auction held during the winter holiday season at the downtown Marriott. We have a silent and live auction with over 300 items, and attendance is around 400 people. Other in-house fundraisers are held during the year: a white elephant auction at our holiday breakfast in December; Theresa’s Market Place in May, where we have up to 15 vendors attend a wine and cheese afternoon; and, of course, a Brag Bag at each meeting where we can all share and show off our very own family and friends’ successes.
We meet at members homes on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. We participate in the Auxiliary-wide events, the Union-Tribune Kids’ NewsDay and Fantasy on Ice, and we try to attend and support other Unit events.
