Save the Date! 14th Annual Dancing for Our Stars Gala

MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center Foundation’s 14th annual gala, Dancing for Our Stars (DFOS), has become one of the hottest philanthropic events in Long Beach. Presented by the Don Temple Family Charitable Foundation, the much anticipated DFOS gala will take place at The Westin Long Beach on Saturday, September 7, 2024. The 2024 gala will benefit the comprehensive mission and benefit areas at MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center and MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.

It is important to have a children’s hospital in our community

Children need health care tailored to their unique needs, like doctors and nurses trained exclusively, and in a kid-friendly place. Your support allows Miller Children’s & Women’s, one of only eight free-standing children’s hospitals in California, to provide critically needed care to our most vulnerable patients, our children, close to home. Thank you.

Long Beach Medical Center Foundation

In 1960, visionaries and philanthropic members of Long Beach communities expanded Seaside Hospital and moved it to a new location with a new name - now called MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center and Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach. Future vision and philanthropy continue to be key elements in keeping high-quality healthcare close to home.

Since 1961, we have been a trusted partner with those in our community to ensure that excellence in health care is available right at home. We do this by supporting patient programs, clinical research, education, medical equipment and capital expansion at MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center and Miller Children's & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.

Long Beach Medical Center Foundation has partnered with hundreds of donors and organizations to raise the funds necessary to provide "that extra measure of care" to those seeking care on our campus. We are able to provide this support through the stewardship of your philanthropic dollars. We invite you to join us to make a difference in the health of our community.

Thank you for being part of the healing.
