Giving Activities and Events: Women & Infants Services

Through annual reunions, special events and educational activities, we provide opportunities for our patients and families to stay in touch. Many wonderful fund-raising events, organized by grateful patients, help us save and change lives. With a little help from our friends, we can do remarkable things.

When you donate to the Little Star Fund, you help support programs, patient care and innovative research connected to obstetrics, maternal/fetal medicine, gynecology, the NICU and more. Your gift supports clinical care, research and education for healthy moms, healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Make a difference by giving to the Little Star Fund today.

Please contact Nicole Ukens, Director of Development, at 858-534-0198 or for more information about the Little Star Fund or any of the programs below.
