HYSTERIA 2016 Raises Over $100,000!

We’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who made HYSTERIA 2016 a big success: our sponsors, our donors, everyone who helped behind the scenes, our amazing performer Lizz Winstead, and all attendees, who made the evening truly special! On May 19th, a sold-out crowd packed the theater of the Jewish Community Center for an evening of comedy and celebration in support of the Clinic. More than 500 guests sipped on the excellent cocktails, beer, and wine provided by gracious sponsors; enjoyed delicious French hors d’oeuvres, and perused the well-stocked silent auction.

Pictures of the event are now up on Facebook!

Together, we raised over $100,000 to provide women and girls in the Bay Area with welcoming, accessible, high-quality health care – and to give real-world training to the next generation of health care providers, leaders, and advocates. Thank you so much to everyone who helped us get there – whether through a sponsorship, an auction purchase, an in-kind donation, or a gift to our Fund-a-Need appeal. Your passion for women’s health and reproductive freedom is an invaluable source of support for Women’s Community Clinic and its work.

On behalf of the 4,000+ clients who will benefit directly from the funds we raised, thank you so much for your generosity and compassion!


Let’s keep the party going! We have until MIDNIGHT on May 31st to meet our $50,000 Fund-a-Need goal – and we’re only $3,555 away! You can help us get there by making a donation online, or by texting HYSTERIA2016 to 24700.
