About the Junior Board

The Junior Board operates under the auspices of the Auxiliary of the Woman's Board of Rush University Medical Center and is committed to serving the hospital through fundraising and volunteer work. The board is made up of over 100 high school-aged girls who reside in New Trier Township.  Members of the Junior Board organize three annual fundraisers: a fall car wash, a holiday tea, and a spring fashion show.  All proceeds go to support programs at the hospital.  Additonally, Junior Board members volunteer at Rush and in the surrounding communities of Chicago's west-side as part of the Rush Community Services Initiatives Program (RCSIP).
