This year, the Los Alamitos Medical Center Auxiliary awarded 11 scholarships totaling $13,000.
The Auxiliary at Los Alamitos Medical Center is a non-profit that serves year round to raise funds for student scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to local students pursuing an education in a health-related field. Eligible students attend a local school, are employees of the medical center or are the children of employees.
Fundraisers range from basket raffles to a fashion show. The main source of funds, however, come from the sales in the volunteer-run hospital gift shop. Located in the main lobby, the gift shop sells an assortment of gifts, flowers, and snacks. Proceeds directly benefit the scholarship fund.
To make a donation to the scholarship fund, call the Auxiliary at (562) 799-3291.
