9th Annual Wine & Ribs Event Comes to your Home or Business
August 14, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 9:00 pm$60
We’re thrilled and excited to carry on with the 9th Annual Wine & Ribs Fundraiser to benefit the Community Health Alliance (CHA).
Now more than ever, the mission of CHA is vital for the health of Washoe County. The population we serve has been hit the hardest by the pandemic, both in health and economics, and is at risk of falling into despair. The number of people who receive primary health care, pediatric dental care, behavioral health, and nutritional support through our clinics and programs, averaging 30,000 per year, is only increasing.
Usually, our biggest annual fundraiser is a summertime wine and ribs party in a public setting that gathers event sponsors, table sponsors, and participants together for food, drink, music and plenty of fun, including a silent auction. But this is no ordinary year, so we’re giving Wine & Ribs an extraordinary spin.
This year, we bring the fun to you! Participate as an event sponsor and/or having ribs and wine delivered to your office or picking up them up for a party at your home Friday, August 14.
While there’s no silent auction this time around, we’ll have a raffle featuring prizes donated and tickets sold by the board.
We understand that no one has escaped the impact of the pandemic but, yes, it’s also an apt time to extend a helping hand to folks at risk of falling down – to give them access to better health and hope for a brighter life.
Please join us for some late summer frivolity while supporting the health of our community. Together, let’s make Reno-Sparks a place where all have fulfilling and enriching lives.
Participants drive through Famous Dave’s on the afternoon of the event, get their wine, beer, food, and party decorations and take it to a safe venue to share with friends. Party packs for 10 people make a fun evening. Proceeds will benefit the patients and the expansion of our Sparks Health Center this fall.
