Ripon Medical Center supporters helped The Foundation for Ripon Medical Center as it surpassed last year’s fund-raising totals for its annual Cheese & Wine event conducted in early April at the hospital.
The evening event featured local wine, artisan beer and hors d’oeuvres, live music and silent auction, as well as a new prize raffle.
The 2019 event raised more than $17,000 with proceeds benefiting programs and services at Ripon Medical Center and within our community that help enhance the health and wellness of residents. That is a nearly $3,000 increase over 2018. More than 100 people attended the Cheese & Wine event.
“We are so fortunate to have such strong community support of this incredible hospital and the many physicians and caregivers that offer quality and compassionate care each and every day,” says Holly Brenner, The Foundation for Ripon Medical Center executive director. “It is wonderful to have funds available to help Ripon Medical Center address both expected and unexpected needs to ensure that the health and wellness needs of this area are being met.”
