Preemie Cup

Silent auction and celebration to serve our community.

Preemie Cup

A Day of Play on the Water

3 Events. 1 Cause. Our Children.

Whether you fish, stand up paddle, or sail, Preemie Cup offers it all! This is a family-friendly event where we ask you to enjoy a day on the water in support of the smallest fish in our sea – the more than 1,100 babies treated each year in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Studer Family Children’s Hospital.

Your support is helping construct all private rooms in the new 72 bed Level II and Level III NICUs in the new Studer Family Children’s Hospital. 


Thursday, August 22 & Saturday, August 24


Enjoy a day on the water and make an impact! We invite you to join us in support of our smallest and bravest patients at Studer Family Children’s Hospital.
