Our mission is to raise charitable donations and awareness for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland - a hospital for kids throughout Northern California - while providing service, friendship, leadership and education opportunities for our dedicated and diverse membership.
This year, with help from our donors and sponsors, Rowan will fund Spirometry equipment for the hospital’s Claremont Clinic. These provide on-site diagnostic testing for the most at-risk kids many of whom are uninsured and/or experiencing homelessness. These children are more likely than their peers to have asthma or other breathing difficulties. Each machine costs ten thousand dollars and our goal is to purchase four of them.
For twenty years the Rowan Shopping Spree has drawn enthusiastic supporters who have joined together to make a difference for families who rely on UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland for their critical medical needs regardless of their ability to pay. Due to the impact of Covid-19, these needs have increased dramatically.
For nearly 100 years, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland has been delivering exceptional medical care to children from all regions of California. Parents choose Children's Oakland because they have the best trained, most experienced specialists with the status as a leading pediatric medical center and Level 1 Trauma Center for specialized pediatric health care, and a genuine passion to treat every child.
