About Winesong

Winesong – who we are and what we do…

Winesong is an annual charity auction and wine + food tasting produced by the Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation.
Proceeds are used to enhance equipment, facilities and services at the Mendocino Coast District Hospital. The Diagnostic Imaging Center, Medical Evacuation Helipad, Out-Patient Surgical services and Emergency Department Equipment are just a few of the vital areas that Winesong funds have enhanced. Since 1985 Winesong has raised over $6 million for improvements in local healthcare.
