You’re Invited: Virtual Holiday Wine Tasting & Auction to benefit Access to Care

When? Friday, December 11, 2020 at 7:00 PM CST

Where? From the comfort of your own home!

Join us for a virtual wine tasting event exclusive to Access to Care supporters!


During this challenging time, we’ve created a safe and fun way to raise funds for the critical funding needed to continue the mission of Access to Care. Participants will receive an amazing wine and cheese tasting package at their home and be given a private link for a virtual tasting with a City Winery Vintner and access to an amazing on-line auction, during this one-of-a-kind event.

Register today to take advantage of the early bird discount!

Invite your friends and family for a socially distant, virtual wine tasting experience with City Winery! Taste wines in the comfort of your own home and enjoy some wonderful cheese pairings while supporting Access to Care!

Due to the pandemic, this will take the place of all our live fundraiser events for 2020.

Can’t make the event? Please consider making a donation.

With the ever-changing climate in health care, your participation is even more critical to our ability to continue to serve those in need. Your support sends immediate aid to low-income, uninsured, and under-insured residents in our community. Proceeds from this fundraiser will allow for these individuals 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.

Support this unique fundraiser by becoming an event sponsor or donating to the online auction. For more information, contact Gayle Deja-Schultz, Director of Development at 708-531-0680 x225


Access to Care Rx Relief Fund

For over 30 years, Access to Care has worked with our provider and community partners to meet the health care needs of diverse, underserviced populations in suburban Cook County and northwest Chicago.

The Access to Care program covers:

  • Doctor office visits for $5,
  • Lab tests and X-rays for $5, and
  • Prescription medication for $15 to $40 co-payments.

Access to Care regularly connects with our members to determine ongoing, unmet needs that make it difficult – and at times, impossible – to maintain good health. These needs are top of mind as we expand the scope of member services in 2020.

A significant number of our members have reported going WITHOUT their monthly prescriptions because they’ve had to use their limited household funds for an unexpected event or hardship. We do NOT want our Access to Care members to have to choose between life-sustaining medications and other unforeseen needs.

In early 2020, we proudly launched the Access to Care Rx Relief Fund

For a limited time, Access to Care members can receive help covering the cost of their prescription co-payment. Call us at 708.531.0680 or email us at and mention your interest in the Rx Relief Fund. You may be eligible to receive your prescription medication at a ZERO co-pay.

Certain restrictions may apply.
