Over the years, Saint Agnes Foundation has developed a reputation for delivering energetic, elegant and creative events to the Central Valley, thanks in large part to two dynamic service groups - Saint Agnes Men's Club and Saint Agnes Women's Club (formerly known as the Saint Agnes Associates). With more than 60 years of combined service, the Men's Club and the Women's Club have raised countless dollars through their annual fundraisers to benefit Saint Agnes and all those it serves.
We invite you to learn more about these two groups, and to consider joining them in helping Saint Agnes build a healthier community!
Saint Agnes Men's Club
Saint Agnes Men's Club is a dynamic group of philanthropic men, whose fundraising activities have benefited the Medical Center and its special programs since 1983. Fundraising events include Casino Night & Golf Championship, Summer Sizzle, and Me-n-Ed's Cross City Race. Additionally, they distribute gift packages to needy families during the holidays. Since its inception, Saint Agnes Men's Club members have generated more than $2 million to support Saint Agnes patient care services and community outreach programs.
Saint Agnes Women's Club
Saint Agnes Women's Club (formerly known as Saint Agnes Associates) is a diverse group of philanthropic women whose primary focus is to raise awareness and dollars for Saint Agnes Holy Cross Center for Women. Located in downtown Fresno, across from Poverello House, the Center provides a safe haven for underserved and homeless women and children.
Since 1984, the Women's Club have raised more than $1 million to support the Women's Center through their annual fall Fashion and Entertainment event. In 1998, they introduced a second fundraiser to meet one of the Center's growing needs for diapers. Through their Annual Diaper Drive, which is growing in popularity each year, the Women's Club has collected more than 250,000 diapers, plus dollars, to benefit the hundreds of women and their babies served by the Center.
