VIMY Awards & WineLover’s Auction at Thunderbird Country Club in Rancho Mirage
The VIMY Awards & WineLover’s Auction is a signature event reflective of the extraordinary people who populate the Palm Springs area. Because of who we are, we recognized the need to honor a significant contributor to healthcare in our Coachella Valley and beyond. This year’s honoree is Desert Healthcare District Foundation for their Equitably connecting Coachella Valley residents to health and wellness services and programs through philanthropy, health facilities, information and community education, and public policy.
The net proceeds from this event benefit Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine. We provide a local solution to a national problem. We offer medical and dental services at no cost to adults in the Coachella Valley who have no insurance. As a community safety net, our clinic treats the whole person by addressing chronic diseases (like high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis), acute conditions (colds, flu), preventive medicine, diet, and emotional health. CVVIM is a member of Volunteers in Medicine, a national nonprofit alliance with more than 90 free clinics across the U.S., whose mission is to provide healthcare services in a compassionate, caring way to our neighbors in need.
