Rose Bud Auxiliary Board Members

Rose Bud Auxiliary

The Rose Bud Auxiliary is a philanthropic group whose mission is to support Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican hospitals in concert with the St. Rose Dominican Health Foundation by advancing quality health care in the community through volunteer, social and fundraising endeavors. The auxiliary is a community of people in the Henderson and Las Vegas Valley working together to promote a healthier society, and having fun raising funds.

An important benefit of belonging to the Rose Bud Auxiliary is that members decide how their donations are spent. Members vote to direct 100% of auxiliary funds to the St. Rose project that is most meaningful to them. This year, the auxiliary has chosen to support the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at the St. Rose Siena Campus.
