Upcoming Event of the Heart


According to Wikipedia, Love is said to be a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection – “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another.” The theme for this year’s Event of the Heart is Celebrate Love. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this year’s Event of the Heart is on Saturday February 8th. What better way to express your love for your fellow human being than by attending the 27th anniversary of MCAVHN’s Event of the Heart at the Ukiah Valley Conference Center.

Event of the Heart raises funds for Mendocino County AIDS/Viral Hepatitis Network. Funds raised are put back into the community by providing services for those living with, affected by, or at risk of AIDS or Viral Hepatitis by reducing harmful practices and promoting healthy lifestyles.

This year’s Event of the Heart begins at 5:30 p.m. with an elegant reception with gourmet hors d’oeuvres featuring Roederer Estate sparkling wines followed by a sumptuous dinner prepared by North State Cafe paired with Jaxon Keys and Frey Vineyards wine, and concluding with delicious desserts and coffee. The live and silent auctions will feature desirable items sure to tempt. The evening will also feature live music and dancing from Double Standyrd.

The festivities are made possible by the generous contributions made by Ukiah Valley Medical Center, Daniel Schott, Mariposa Market, Savings Bank of Mendocino County, Coyote Valley Casino, and Doug Louis.
