Volunteer Opportunity >> Make Corsages and Boutonnieres for UCSF Pediatric Prom
From the desk of Laura G., Chair of Pediatric Prom Floral Committee:
The wonderful staff at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital volunteer their time and expertise to put on this extraordinary prom because they recognize the incredibly positive psychological and emotional value such an event can bring to the lives of these brave teen patients. The teens attending this special Prom include inpatients, outpatients receiving on-going treatment, and recent “graduates” who have successfully completed their program of treatment.
You can join UCSF Partners in Care members and friends who support the Prom by volunteering their time and contributing funds in the following ways:
- Making 200+ corsages and boutonnieres with us on April 20th 2017,
- Donating money on this website to pay for floral supplies and provide fun party favors.
Once again there will be two venues for making our beautiful flower creations:
1. (East Bay) in Lafayette: The East Bay assembly effort will begin mid-morning so that the flowers can be delivered to UCSF before the evening commute rush. We will let you know more details and timing as we get closer to April.
2. (San Francisco) at a UCSF Mission Bay campus classroom: We will let you know more details and timing as we get closer to April, but this session will be during the afternoon.
Please share this information. The number of corsages and boutonnieres we need to make is always increasing and as they say “many hands make light work”! Those of you who helped last year know that this is a fairly easy task and a chance to learn a new skill and to make some new friends. Enjoy a morning or afternoon of camaraderie among a group who come together to create something beautiful for our brave young patients who are so very deserving of a night of fun!
