Our 21st annual Crab, Wine, & Beer Days fundraiser brought us a lot of sunshine and dollars! We raised $150,000 gross and we are still counting!
Former Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman is not only NOT retired from our event, he lit up the stage as our auctioneer – and steered the Fund-the-Future Pledge Drive – just hours before his own retirement party. That is dedication!
This year’s Fund-the-Future beneficiary was MCC’s Open Door clinic, created for the specific and unique needs of our LGBTQ+ patients. The Live Auction was filled with get-aways and rare large format Mendocino Wine bottles, including an amazing wine and lodging package donated by our friends at @ [288905447844446:274:Destination Hopland].
Both events were sell outs at 500 attendees each. Supporters traveled here from all over California and 10 different states, as far away as Rhode Island, Florida, Maryland, and Georgia.
Thank you to our hard-working and dedicated staff and volunteers (and staff who volunteered) – you make the event possible and our guests feel welcome!
Mark your calendars for next year’s events – they sell out quickly! The Cioppino Dinner will be on Friday, January 29, 2021 and the Crab Cake Cook Off will be on Saturday, January 30, 2021. Online sales open on October 15, 2020. See you there! #cwb2020 #cwb2021
