Hillsborough Auxiliary


Our Hillsborough Auxiliary was launched in 1964 by founding members who still remain active in the organization. Now comprising more than 150 members, the auxiliary hosts two annual signature events–a festive fall luncheon and elegant spring gala–and participates in service projects such as art activities for our preschoolers and holiday parties for older adults at our Fair Oaks Adult Activity Center. Each year, Auxiliary members raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of Peninsula Family Service programs. Visit their website or stay tuned to our News page for information on their upcoming events.


Held in early spring, our Hillsborough Auxiliary’s Gala has become a must-attend event. The Gala’s theme stays a carefully guarded secret until members make a grand public announcement at Thanks for Giving, their festive fall luncheon. From a night on the Love Boat at Treasure Island to Black Tie and Boots in Atherton, each Gala inspires hundreds of guests to come out in support of the Auxiliary and Peninsula Family Service.
Gala sponsorship opportunities are available for both corporations and individuals.

Corporate sponsorship packages may include advertisements in the Gala program, recognition on the Gala invitation, prominent display of your logo at the Gala, publicity via Peninsula Family Service e-communications and website, an invitation to the Sponsorship Pre-Party, and/or Gala tickets.

Individual sponsorship packages may include recognition on the Gala invitation and program, an invitation to the Sponsorship Pre-Party, tickets to the Gala and/or Sponsor Raffle tickets.

We are grateful for the Corporate sponsors support.
Your generosity made this event a success!
