Reno – Community Health Alliance (CHA) is hosting its fifth annual Wine & Ribs fundraiser on Saturday, August 6 at 5 p.m. at Bartley Ranch Regional Park in Reno.
Proceeds will benefit low-income and uninsured northern Nevadans to aid in the mission of CHA to provide quality, affordable, comprehensive health services to all.
Wine & Ribs will feature offerings from Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que, a salad bar, 25 wine varietals from Whispering Vine Wine Co., a photo booth, and live entertainment from The Novelists and Lake Tahoe’s Luke Stevenson. Returning this year will be a silent auction featuring unique Reno experiences including a Tahoe-Pyramid Bike Tour, and the new “Fund A Need” option where guests can fund specific programs such as the CHA food pantry.
“We expect this year’s Wine & Ribs fundraiser to be our best ever,” said Chuck Duarte, chief executive officer, Community Health Alliance. “Not only are the food and wine amazing, but the live music and auction items are nothing less than spectacular. Our attendees and sponsors do wonders for raising funds for the underserved in our community.”
CHA provides high quality medical and dental care and integrated behavioral health care in seven fixed site clinics and three mobile units in Washoe County. Patients who lack insurance are charged on a sliding scale that is adjusted for income and family size.
Individual tickets to Wine & Ribs are available for $50 in advance or $60 at the door. New this year is the opportunity to purchase concert tickets exclusive of the food and drink, available for $25 each.
