Please join us for the 29th Annual UC Davis Wine Tasting and Auction Benefit for the Student-Run Free Clinics. Several clinics around Sacramento serve the community’s indigent population, providing care to those who might otherwise go without. At the same time, the clinics provide an environment in which medical students not only learn valuable skills, but also develop an appreciation for discrepancies in the healthcare system, Sacramento’s cultural diversity, and the way in which a healthcare provider can affect change in the community. Every weekend, UC Davis medical and undergraduate students work side-by-side with volunteer physicians at seven free clinics: Bayanihan Clinic, Clinica Tepati, Imani Clinic, Joan Viteri Memorial Clinic, Paul Hom Clinic, Shifa Clinic, and Willow Project. The clinics are administered by students with the help of many volunteers and with funding from generous donors.
The Benefit will feature wine from area wineries and food from local Sacramento restaurants. Both silent and live auctions offer a wide range of exciting items. All of the proceeds from this elegant evening of fine wine, gourmet food, and first-class entertainment will help keep the clinics’ doors open. Please help us continue to serve the community and to create a next generation of physicians who are compassionate social servants.
