RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Barton Foundation’s annual gala, which funds local health initiatives through Barton Health, will be held online this year. Funds raised will help to address social determinants of health like food insecurity, in addition to supporting healthcare workers with protective equipment and financial relief. More than 700 local families have already been helped through the foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, this year’s gala beneficiary.

Participants can make an online donation of any amount from November 30 through December 11, and those contributing $100 or more can opt into a drawing to win one of six luxury prize packages; including a ski trip to any participating Vail resort; an El Dorado County wine tasting experience; an oceanfront getaway at Pismo Beach; or an extravagant winter or summer retreat at Edgewood Tahoe Resort.

Through the COVID-19 Response Fund, the Foundation is also supporting Barton Memorial Hospital’s Skilled Nursing Facility. This long-term care facility’s residents are some of the most vulnerable patients at the hospital. The 2020 Virtual Gala will help fund resources to deliver needed protective equipment, allowing families to safely visit their loved ones.
