A Truly Memorable Virtual Hob Nob, Thanks to You!

Foundation News & Updates

On Saturday, December 12, over 250 households joined us for our Hob Nob Virtual Gala. For those of you that were able to join us, we thank you. In true alignment with the values of our community, people from all walks of life came together to celebrate, honor, and raise over $300k for Saint Francis Memorial Hospital.

With special appearances by Governor Gavin Newsom, Toni Newman, and Dr. Kathleen Jordan, we came together as a community to support our role in health care.

We honored many in our community and celebrated and raised money for four critical areas of Saint Francis Memorial Hospital.

  • Gender Institute
  • Women’s Health
  • Bothin Burn Center
  • COVID-19 Unit

Our patients shared their personal experiences of care at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital during challenging times and devastating events.

Our entertainers from SFBATCO and jazz vocalist Carla Helmbrecht charmed us with singing and inspiring words.

Our supporters honored us with generosity and commitment to our work.

If you weren’t able to join us live, you can watch the Hob Nob Gala broadcast here. Please share our special event with your friends and family! We continue to accept your donations in support of Saint Francis. Your support helps us fund needs at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, where we care for anyone in need, literally saving lives.

For contributions, please go here.

Thank you.
