The 55th Annual San Francisco Debutante Ball
On June 15, 2019 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, the CPMC Women's Board of CPMC Foundation hosted 28 debs and 535 attendees at the 55th Annual Debutante Ball. This year we were proud to support the research of Lorry F. Frankel, MD, MBA, FAAP, FCCM, Chair of CPMC’s Pediatrics Department. Ball funds will also benefit the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), an 8-bed facility providing tertiary care for the riskiest surgeries and the most seriously injured and ill children in Northern California. The ball was successfully led by co-chairs Meagan Levitan and Kathryn Peyton Brown.
