Our 11th annual food, wine, and fashion show fundraiser for safety net medical clinics in the greater Sacramento region was held at The Del Paso Country Club on the evening of Saturday, March 21st. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, guests, and volunteers we raised $315,000 for a network of over twenty clinics and programs that together provide 250,000 patient care visits per year to the medically uninsured and underinsured. It was our honor to recognize Ron Brown, President and CEO of Brown Construction, as this year's Safety Net Hero.
