Solano Wine & Food Jubilee Returns to Vacaville in 2016

Solano County’s most gala fund raising event – the Solano Wine & Food Jubilee -- will be held at Sunrise Event Center in Vacaville on Saturday, April 23, 2016.

The 29th Annual Jubilee, a benefit for the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement, will get under way at 6:30 p.m. at the recently opened venue. “The elaborately decorated center should prove to be the perfect venue to host Solano County’s most popular and elegant fund-raising event,” notes Bill Seiden, Jubilee chairman.
The Jubilee will again offer ticketholders an opportunity to sample wines, brews, non-alcoholic beverages and tasty foods offered by some of the area’s most notable vendors. In addition to the tasty tidbits, ticketholders will also be able to peruse an array of silent auction tables, and dance to one of the area’s most popular dance bands, The Rhythm Method 4.  

Jubilee organizers are happy to announce that the top prize in the 2016 Jubilee Raffle will again be a brand new car, in a repeat partnership with Rami Yanni of Vacaville GMC, Dodge, Hyundai and Nissan. Rami has offered to donate a 2016 Nissan Altima, Buick Encore or Hyundai Sonata as the Grand Prize in the raffle, that also offers $10,000 in cash prizes. Tickets are $50 each, or three for $100. Call (707) 646-3133 to purchase a raffle ticket, or stop by Jackson Medical Supply on Main Street in Vacaville.
So far, Presenting Sponsors for the 2016 event include Al and Patt Shaw; Rami Yanni of Vacaville GMC, Dodge, Hyundai and Nissan; Freeman Family & Cosmetic Dentistry; and Financial Architects Partners.

For the minimum contribution of $1,500 -- and up to $20,000 and above -- a sponsor will not only receive invitations to Open That Bottle Night, but early entrance to the Jubilee, beginning at 5:30 p.m., hotel accommodations, and limousine service.

The Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, organized by NorthBay Healthcare Foundation to support the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement, has become the biggest and most popular fund-raising event in Solano County. Over the past 28 years this sell-out gala has raised more than $3.5 million, enabling NorthBay to provide physical, emotional and spiritual care for the terminally ill, regardless of their ability to pay. With this support, these patients – and their families – are able to live their final days as peacefully and comfortably as possible.
