The OLE Health Foundation will hold one of Napa Valley’s first in-person charity events of 2021 when the organization hosts ¡SALUD! Napa Valley on Saturday, June 12, 2021. Designed to meet state and CDC guidelines for gatherings, guests will take part in intimate COVID-safe, al fresco dinners happening simultaneously at wineries and private homes throughout Napa Valley.
Wineries hosting SALUD Dinners include:
The Hess Collection
Jones Family Vineyards
Joseph Phelps Vineyards
St. Supéry Estate & Winery
Proceeds from the evening and the accompanying online auction support OLE Health, Napa County’s only Federally Qualified Health Center and non-profit community clinic, which ensures high quality primary healthcare for 40,000 residents in Napa and Solano County with 3 of 4 living 200% below the national poverty line. The organization has been on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic ensuring service delivery via tele- and video-health, responding to a 2x demand in behavioral health services and administering more than 10,000 COVID vaccine doses, at least half of which were provided to farmworkers and other essential workers.
The 2021 Fund-a-Need is dedicated to “Bridging the Digital Healthcare Divide,” by helping to fill the gaps required to access lab results, manage well-checks and navigate the insurance system for those patients with limited access to email, internet or other barriers to access. Funds raised will purchase a state-of-the-art patient communication system and other equipment upgrades that will reduce administrative expenses and allow more dollars to go directly to patient care.
Only 200 tickets are available and can be secured with a $2,500 donation ($2,250 tax-deductible) at https://one.bidpal.net/saludnapavalley. The Online Auction commences on June 10, 2021, with previews on June 1. SALUD 2021 is presented by Darioush Winery and sponsored in part by Dalla Valle Vineyards, The Doctors Company and Redwood Credit Union.
