Virtual Holiday Wine Tasting & Auction to benefit Access to Care

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2020 fundraising event!

During this challenging time, we created a safe and fun way to raise funds to continue the mission of Access to Care. Participants received an amazing wine and cheese tasting package at their home and a private link for a virtual tasting with a City Winery vintner. We also had many participants in an online auction. We are happy to report that we met our fundraising goal for the event! Proceeds from this fundraiser will allow for individuals in need to be assigned to a primary care physician near their home where they will receive unlimited, low-cost office visits, diagnostic lab and radiology tests, prescription medication and mental health care. THANK YOU!
