Auxiliary


 Child Haven Auxiliary

In 1983 several passionate women concerned about the plight of abused and neglected children in Solano County embraced the vision of Pat Gross and the other founders and joined forces to create Child Haven.   The legacy of the passion that moved these women to action continues with the Child Haven Auxiliary.  The Child Haven Auxiliary has been hosting, what is claimed to be , the longest continuous running Solano County fundraiser, Child Haven’s Annual Christmas Luncheon.  For 23 years the Child Haven Auxiliary has hosted this  luncheon bringing together community members in support of Child Haven.  The event orginally consisted of Auxiliary members making lasagna, salads and angel ornaments  for all attendees who gathered at the Wednesday Club.  The event eventually outgrew the historic Wednesday Club and is now located at the Marriott in Fairfield.

This team of dedicated men and women not only come together each year for the Christmas Luncheon, whenever called upon they gladly host other events including our annual crab feed and in 2010 a memorial service for Pat Gross, one of Child Haven’s founding women.
