Lambert Bridge Winery to Donate 50% of Local Resident Wine Sales in November & December

DRINK TO YOUR HEALTH!

It’s A Wonderful Life in Healdsburg – But Would It Be As Wonderful Without Access To Quality, Local Healthcare? The Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation has issued a $3 Million “Dollar for Dollar” challenge grant to support healthcare in Northern Sonoma County and Lambert Bridge Winery is leading the charge to rally the community by donating 50% of Local Resident Wine Sales in November and December.

Lambert Bridge Winery is donating 50% of November and December wine sales made by customers who reside in the Healdsburg Hospital district to the Healthcare Foundation of Northern Sonoma County. Through the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation “Dollar for Dollar Challenge” challenge grant, each dollar contributed through the Lambert Bridge commitment will thus become two dollars for the Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County. This commitment allows residents to support their local hospital and simultaneously enjoy high quality, local wine during the holiday season.

“That an organization like Kalmanovitz is willing to invest so much in our local healthcare is a unique and exciting opportunity. As a community, how can we not rise to such a generous offer?” commented Greg Wilcox, Managing Partner at Lambert Bridge Winery. “We want to do our part to help make this grant a reality. How often can you say ‘Every dollar I spend on something comes back to the community?’ You don’t have to choose whether to donate to the hospital or buy wine for the holidays. By buying it here, you get to do both!”

The non-profit Healdsburg District Hospital (HDH) is community-owned and relies on local residents for funding and support.
• It serves as the first-line inpatient, outpatient and emergency care facility for the 60,000 residents of Healdsburg, Windsor, Geyserville, Cloverdale and the surrounding area north to the Mendocino County line.
• It plays a vital role in supporting and strengthening the economy of the community by providing stable, well paying jobs and stimulating the purchase of local goods, services and accommodations.
• It shortens the length of the time employees need to get vital healthcare services thus decreasing absenteeism.
• It is also a key decision factor in attracting new business and residents.

All funds from the Kalmanovitz challenge grant will be directed to the renovation and reequipping of the Healdsburg District Hospital’s Imaging Center. The first phase was completed this past August with the installation of new state-of-art digital sixty-four slice CT scanner which is capable of diagnosing pulmonary embolisms, as well as performing cardiac imaging, advanced stroke analysis and virtual colonoscopies. The revitalization of the Hospital’s Imaging Center means that physicians will no longer find it necessary to refer patients out of the district for these vital services, and the Hospital’s Kozel Stroke Center is capable of responding more quickly and completely to incoming patients.
