Auxiliary members are dedicated volunteers with a mission to support medical excellence at Overlake through community engagement and fundraising. Auxilians played a critical role in Overlake’s founding, and today they continue to provide valuable support for Overlake.

The Auxiliaries host a wide variety of events and activities throughout the year to help fund and learn valuable information on cancer care, cardiac and stroke programs, healthcare services for seniors, neonatal intensive care and other vital programs and services.

Current Auxiliaries include:

  • Roger Stark Auxiliary: Cardiac and Stroke
  • Sonja Potter Auxiliary: Senior Services
  • Shirley Goodman Auxiliary: Behavioral & Mental Healthcare
  • Elsie Barker Cancer Care Auxiliary
  • Jill Wikstrom Dreamcatchers: Overlake Employee hardship (application for support)
