Winton Club

Supporting Winchester Hospital for a Century

The Winton Club was started in 1911 by 23 women hoping to make a difference in the community through philanthropic activities to support Winchester Hospital. Throughout the years, The Winton Club has donated funds for many important and innovative services and equipment.

To date, this women’s group has contributed about $3 million to Winchester Hospital. In addition, Winton Club members volunteer over 5,000 hours of in-hospital service each year, in addition to many hundreds of hours outside the hospital.

About the Much-Loved Cabaret

Since 1921, The Winton Club has sponsored an annual Cabaret to benefit Winchester Hospital. The performance is managed completely by volunteer Winton Club members and supported by a volunteer cast including area residents and hospital personnel.

The Cabaret is enjoyed by audiences from throughout the surrounding communities. Thousands attend the performance during its five-night run, and it is truly the talk of the town for weeks beforehand. The Cabaret is presented each January.

Supporting the Hospital Gift Shop

Year-round fundraising by The Winton Club is done through the management of the Winton Gift Shop, located in the lobby of Winchester Hospital. 

Members of The Winton Club serve on the Board for the shop in the roles of buyers, treasurer, publicity, and the Gift Shop chair and assistant chair. These women run the shop in all regards, with additional volunteers from the club assisting in the shop as needed.
