All proceeds benefit the new Asante children’s hospital
(Medford, OR – October 14, 2021) The 2021 Oregon Wine Experience® hosted its virtual event series and it was a resounding success. The virtual Founders’ Barrel Auction, Miracle Auction and Silent Auction generated more than $1.6 million. All proceeds will benefit children’s health care, including a new children’s hospital-within-a-hospital, as well as other programs at Asante. The virtual auctions took place September 27, 2021, through October 3, 2021.
“The support of Oregon Wine Experience is particularly important as we raise the funds to build a new children’s hospital and other initiatives in the AsanteForward campaign,” said Floyd Harmon, Executive Director of Asante Foundation. “The substantial participation by our sponsors and donors not only gives hope, but it also makes life saving health care a reality and we’re thrilled with the support and outcome of the 2021 Oregon Wine Experience.”
Proceeds were raised from our generous sponsors and partners, the virtual Miracle/Silent Auction and the virtual Founders’ Barrel Auction.
“We are so thankful for the continued generosity and support of our sponsors and donors” said Andrea Reeder, Asante Foundation Director of Campaign and Operations. “Despite moving this year’s events to the digital sphere again, our friends and partners rallied and helped us raise over $1.6 million towards the new children’s hospital. It’s wonderful to be a part of such a strong and supportive community.”
The Oregon Wine Experience® is a multi-day wine and culinary event, where 100% of money raised stays local and benefits Children’s Miracle Network and other healthcare programs supported by the Asante Foundation. This year’s Miracle Kid, Elio, is twelve years old and battling a second round of Ewing’s sarcoma at Asante. Elio and his family are grateful he can receive care just 15 minutes from home, so he can return home and spend time with his little brother Enzo. Contributions from the Oregon Wine Experience® help fund the new women’s and children’s hospital within the new Pavilion at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. The Pavilion will feature a state-of-the-art Pediatric Infusion Center for kids like Elio, facing cancer and other serious illnesses.
“I’m so grateful that we live in southern Oregon and have a community that sees children are important and deserve to have a facility that caters to them and their families.” Vanessa, Elio’s mother.
