The Alvarado Auxiliary is a non-profit organization, separate from Alvarado hospital, established in February 1972. The auxiliary’s mission is to minister to the non-medical needs of patients in an effort to improve their mental well-being and physical comfort, as well as provide outreach to the San Diego community.
On Friday, November 18th, The Auxiliary will host its 18th Annual Golf Invitational at the beautiful East Lake Country Club in San Diego. Proceeds from the event will fund many of the hospital’s outreach programs and philanthropic causes, including the annual restorative golf tournament for people with disabilities, the Sir Koff-A-Lot bears for open-heart patients, and Project E.A.S.E. which provides funds for social workers to assist patients with transportation, co-pays, as well as many other services.
