The 55th annual Children's Hospital Winter Ball in December was a memorable and magical evening honoring and celebrating the accomplishments of 15 young ladies from Alameda, Contra Costa and Marin counties.
As a result of the Winter Ball, members of Hill Branch recently presented a $150,000 check to Children's Hospital Oakland. Through the success of the ball, an annual event since 1958, Hill Branch has donated more than $4.7 million to the hospital. Children's Hospital Oakand celebrated its centennial in 2012. Hill Branch, founded in 1914, has been committed to raising funds for children's care, pediatric research and teaching at Children's Hospital Oakland. Hill Branch is proud that the work and compassion demonstrated by all Winter Ball supporters help Children's Hospital Oakland to sustain its mission to turn no child away due to a lack of financial resources.
