Mark Your Calendar!
2013 is a Wishes year! On Thursday, October 10, join us at The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco for this biennial celebration of CPMC’s culture of care in our hospital and our community. We’ll toast the distinguished career of Martin Brotman, M.D., beloved former CEO of CPMC and now Senior Vice President of Education, Research and Philanthropy for Sutter Health. And we’ll salute the service of physicians Laurie Green (Obstetrics and Gynecology), David Tong (Stroke), Mohammed Kashani-Sabet (Cancer) and William Stewart (Institute for Health & Healing). For more information, contact Blair Parker at parkerbx@ sutterhealth.org or 415-600-4405.
2012 Report on Philanthropy
In addition to the financial statements you would expect, CPMC Foundation’s 2012 Report on Philanthropy also profiles several of CPMC’s charitable partners. Together, they form a mosaic of people, passion and service that invested more than $13 million in the Medical Center’s programs last year.

Saluting Our Volunteers
During National Volunteer Week in April, more than 200 guests, including CPMC volunteers, staff, and leadership, gathered to celebrate CPMC’s long tradition of volunteerism at the Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon at the Marines Memorial Club & Hotel. Many in the crowd were moved to tears by the stories shared by volunteers Roberto Bruno (Palliative Care & Bereavement Support Program) and Kimberly Quon (Hospitalized Elder Life Program). In 2012, some 1,199 volunteers contributed 91,483 hours of service to our patients and staff at CPMC, valued at $2,264,211.
Classic Cars Drive for ALS
Nancy Mathews and Dan Ersig stand in front of a 1926 Pierce Arrow at the 10th Annual Mathews Car and Motorcycle Ride. Each March a caravan of 20 to 25 classic motor vehicles – two- and four wheeled – cruise the winding roads through the redwoods and along the coast from Woodside to lunch in Pescadero. Proceeds of the drive benefit special patient services at CPMC’s Forbes Norris ALS Center; this year they raised a record $17,000. Mathews created the event to honor her late husband Marshall, who died of ALS and was a patient of the center.
