Scripps Health Foundation Events

Scripps Health Foundation special events are essential to our philanthropic tradition. They provide our supporters the opportunity to positively impact the future of medicine and to build important relationships with our Scripps leadership team and the surrounding community. Our events raise more than $3.5 million annually to help our hospitals, clinics and programs provide the quality care upon which our community relies. Throughout the year, we offer dozens of social and educational events that you can attend or sponsor.
