Healthcare Foundation Sunshine Celebration 2019
Friday, August 2nd, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm the Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County will be holding its newest event: Sunshine Celebration.
The Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County made the difficult choice to cancel its biggest fundraiser of the year, Healthcare Affair, given the unexpected heavy rain during the week and the day of the event.
Fortunately, longtime supporter Tatiana McWilliams of Compass Realty and her partner Charlene Schnall of Sotheby’s delivered a fabulous opportunity to host a replacement reception at a hilltop Alexander Valley estate. The estate boasts a magnificent Santa Barbara style architecture, expansive valley views and is exclusively available to the Healthcare Foundation.
Attendees of our new event, Sunshine Celebration can look forward to experiencing a high-end strolling dinner and reception with a silent auction, raffle and an exciting live auction. The strolling dinner will feature cuisine by Chef Didier Ageorges of Pascaline. The live auction will be led by energetic auctioneer Rachel Britten, with exclusive auction packages and one-of-a-kind experiences. Reception libations will be donated by local Sonoma County wineries and Healthcare Foundation supporters. Funds raised at this event go directly towards building a healthier northern Sonoma County in the focus areas of mental health, early childhood development and health access.
Attendees of Sunshine Celebration will have the opportunity to mingle and explore a sprawling Alexander Valley estate. The home boasts all the Wine Country must-haves: outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplaces, pool, tennis court, bocce court, vegetable garden beds and much more. The entrance to the estate welcomes guests with a roundabout that showcases the home’s full splendor. The multiple living areas are a must-see. This is a truly unique venue and we are so thankful to Tatiana McWilliams of Compass Realty and her partner Charlene Schnall of Sotheby’s for giving the Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County exclusive access for our event.
