Avera St. Luke's Auxiliary

Avera St. Luke’s Auxiliary, which includes about 230 members, promotes and advances the welfare of Avera St. Luke’s through service as fund-raisers, ambassadors and volunteers. Auxiliary members and volunteers provide more than 35,000 in-service hours to the hospital each year.

The Auxiliary sponsors a variety of events, as well as a scholarship program to help students who attend college in South Dakota. The Gift Shop at Avera St. Luke’s is staffed by volunteers and is the Auxiliary’s biggest money-making project. The Auxiliary donates funds for a wide range of items at the hospital, and raised $150,000 to help fund construction of Avera St. Luke's warm water therapy pool.
