LifeLong’s Annual Gala Raises $185,000 and Kicks Off New William Jenkins Health Center Capital Campaign
More than 225 people attended our Annual Gala Feb. 25 at Hs Lordships, raising $185,000 in total — a new record!
The dinner-dance and fundraiser also kicked off the LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center Capital Campaign. The “Fund-A-Need” event at the gala raised $26,000 to start this venture.
Dr. Bertram Lubin, MD, Associate Dean of Children’s Health at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, was keynote speaker. Dr. Lubin is a visionary in Academic Pediatrics whose 50-year career has improved the lives of countless children and adults locally and globally.
A special video honoring Dr. William Jenkins, the Health Center’s namesake, was shown to launch the campaign. The video features pictures of many of the children helped by the center, as well as interviews with health center staff and Dr. Jenkin’s son, John, who is a LifeLong Board Member. You also can see proposed architect’s drawings of the LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center, too. Click here

, and our Benefactor, Kaiser Permanente
