TWIG (Terrific Women in Giving) is the Auxiliary of the Children's Medical Center of Dayton.
On a regular basis, the Auxiliary makes pledges to support projects within the hospital, and then holds fundraisers to fulfill each pledge. Typically, our pledge duration ranges between two to five years, and is for an amount between $500,000-$2 million. Most of our pledges support "soft-sided" items that improve the comfort level of the hospital for young patients and their families - things that might fall outside of the normal hospital budget.
Our current pledge is a 3-year pledge of $500,000 which will be used for renovations of the Emergency Center.
There are many TWIG groups, or "branches", of the Auxiliary throughout the Greater Dayton Area. Each of these TWIG groups is responsible for producing its own fundraising projects as well as supporting the larger fundraising projects organized by the Auxiliary.
The Auxiliary has several yearly fundraisers that it sponsors: Sugarplum Festival of Trees (always held the weekend before Thanksgiving) and a Pro/Am golf tournament (held during the summer).
