Love Wins at Noche de Amor 2019

February 9th at the Sonoma Jet Center in Santa Rosa, the Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County raised $143,000 at its fundraiser Noche de Amor. The funds raised will go towards improving the health and well being of north county residents. This event celebrates the Foundation’s legacy of providing access to medical, dental and mental health care for low-income Latinx families. More than 200 attendees showed up to raise their paddles to support the foundation, while sipping wine, eating authentic Hispanic food and dancing to Latinx inspired music. The food and the beverages of the evening were donated in-kind by a local Sonoma County business and individuals that believe everyone in our region deserves to live a healthier life.
The fundraiser was planned by Co-Chairs Malinalli López, Peter McAweeney and Donna Merideth. Celebrity Emcee and Auctioneer Andrew Firestone from ABC’s the Bachelor entertained and encouraged the crowd to raise their paddles for health. The unique Learjet hangar venue at the Sonoma Jet Center was donated by Julia and Josh Hochberg.
The Healthcare Foundation raises 100% of its annual budget every year and depends on generous donors and its two signature fundraisers to support its mission. The Healthcare Foundation takes care of those who live and work in the region by investing in programs and services that address the health, mental health and early childhood development needs of our community.
