The Auxiliary of Advocate Sherman Hospital

The Auxiliary of Advocate Sherman Hospital has served and supported Advocate Sherman Hospital since 1945. The goal of the Auxiliary is to raise funds and provide financial assistance for needed programs and equipment at Advocate Sherman Hospital. In 2006, the Auxiliary made their largest pledge by making a $1 million commitment to the new Birthing Center.

The main fundraiser each year is an annual auxiliary benefit ball where we honor outstanding individuals in the Advocate Sherman Hospital organization. Each year, the ball is held in March to raise money for a specific unit/department at the hospital that may be in need of new technology or equipment.

The Auxiliary also operates the Tree House Gift Shop, a 2,500 square foot gift shop in the main lobby, which also includes the Sherman Perk Coffee Shop.

The Auxiliary of Advocate Sherman Hospital is proud to have given more than $445,000 in scholarships and over $4.5 million to Advocate Sherman Hospital in annual monetary gifts.
