Pictured above: Former winemaker Don Crank presenting the Founders’ Gift in 2013, on behalf of Willamette Valley Vineyards, in the amount of $50,000 to ¡Salud! at their annual Oregon Pinot Noir Auction Gala. During the presentation, the Managing Nurse, Leda Garside and I made an appeal to the audience that raised an additional $142,000! This is the largest special appeal ever raised in ¡Salud!'s history. Overall the evening raised $710,000.
The money will be used to fund ¡Salud!'s Wellness Clinic Campaign that provides mobile health services to our Oregon vineyard workers and their families. The relationship between Oregon winemakers and healthcare professionals, united in their mission to benefit this essential workforce, is unique to Oregon. No other state has such an effective and far-reaching program.
