Make a splash at this year’s Little Grad Picnic! We’re celebrating the “Little Grads” from UC San Diego Health’s NICU. Share an afternoon with old friends, and make some new ones. We can’t wait to see how much you’ve grown! Please note: We’ve moved our location this year to celebrate the opening of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Jacobs Medical Center in La Jolla. We’ll be having fun in the sun near the beautiful new facility at UC San Diego Health.

Blood drive: Little Grad picnic attendees are invited to make a donation of life while attending the picnic. San Diego is currently experiencing a shortage of blood for our local hospitals. You can be a miracle for someone’s child, friend, neighbor. The convenient and easy process takes less than an hour (including time for snacks!). Make an appointment. For more information, stop by the Blood Mobile at the event. Thank you for saving a life.

Milk drive: Little Grad Picnic attendees who can donate at least 100 ounces of breastmilk and meet other qualifying criteria can contribute to the Mothers' Milk Bank milk drive.
