The CHC Auxiliary
A Longtime Tradition with Lasting Impact
Since its inception more than 60 years ago, the CHC Auxiliary has been pursuing its goals of educating the public about CHC’s work and raising funds to support our programs.
Some of the efforts of Auxiliary volunteers have been long term in scope, including: The Summer Symphony, The Bargain Box, The Domino Tournament, The Country House Restaurant and Gift Shop, The Birthday Club and most recently, The Brick Project.
Other successful endeavors over the years include shopping center openings, fashion shows, home tours, musical events, formal balls and retail ventures.
The group recently added “friend raisers” to their wide range of activities, as a way to introduce CHC to more community members and increase awareness of the problems facing young people today.
In May, the CHC Auxiliary presented a special screening of the documentary ANGST: Raising Awareness About Anxiety followed by Q&A discussion with CHC experts, and funds raised by this event supported the Teen Mental Health Initiative.
The Auxiliary is passionate about its desire to unite individuals for the purpose of service and fellowship in support of CHC’s mission and goals. This dedicated group of volunteers continues to meet regularly and remains committed to advancing the programs of CHC through education, volunteer support and fundraising.
