Join us for an evening of fun and inspiration!

Now in its 40th year, the annual Family House Gala is a special celebration featuring a festive cocktail reception, gourmet dinner with amazing wines, a finely curated Live Auction, plus live music, and so much more. Hundreds of dedicated supporters, corporate partners, friends and volunteers participate in this annual fundraising event.

On the occasion of our 40th Anniversary, the Board of Directors of Family House recognizes just a few of the medical leaders at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital who are innovators in caring for sick children.  They represent the family-centered care for which Family House and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital is known. Their dedication is exemplified by significant cutting-edge research, along with their long-time commitment to Family House.  These outstanding physicians represent the best care available in the nation, and we are proud to recognize their work on this important anniversary.

For the safety of our guests, volunteers and vendors, all attendees must bring proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including a booster if eligible). We want you to be comfortable and safe, and most importantly, to enjoy a wonderful evening.
