WINESONG 2013 RAISES OVER HALF A MILLION FOR MENDOCINO COAST HOSPITAL FOUNDATION!!!
(Fort Bragg, CA) Winesong 2013 kicked off on Friday, Sept. 6th with a sold-out insider’s view of spectacular Anderson Valley Pinot Noir’s at “Winesong and Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association Pinot Noir Celebration” hosted by the Little River Inn. About 20 wineries were there including such greats as Goldeneye and Handley Cellars, along with some newcomers such as Witching Stick, Lichen Estate and Frati Horn pouring to a crowd of happy Pinot Noir lovers.
On Saturday, over 1200 guests strolled through the enchanting Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens enjoying food and wine from many winemaking regions. More than 50 fine restaurants and food purveyors from Northern California provided a wonderful variety of culinary fare. The performances of acoustic music ensemblesthroughout the venue completed this stellar and unparalleled event.
The sold-out live auction raised over $500, 000 to benefit the Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation. This year’s “fund a need” lot—specifically to be used to purchase a new ambulance—brought in $116,000 in a matter of minutes!
The original 2013 Winesong Art of the Year was an acrylic on canvas piece called, “The Tipping Point” by artist Laura Pope that sold for a record-breaking $8,200.
The Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation, the Winesong staff, and members of
the community who count on the services provided by the Coast Hospital thank
all of the donors, volunteers and bidders who made this event such a success
and we look forward to doing it all again next year. 2014 will mark
Winesong's 30th year. Jeri Erickson, Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation
Director notes “... we can’t wait to pull out all the stops!” So save the
