An opportunity to help those that are helping to care for aging and ailing family members. The second annual Heart and Wine Gala takes place Saturday evening beginning at 6:00 PM at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The Gala benefits One Source Empowering Caregivers which is a group of volunteers that provide relief to people that need a break from the 24 hour seven days a week responsibility of caring for a family member.
Donna Raibley (Ribe-ly) says that the One Source carefully matches the relief person with the caretaker to provide four hours of break time per week.
Currently Raibley says there are twenty-four volunteers in the field. The service they provide is sometimes the only time-off a caregiver gets.
The gala includes a silent aution with over 300 items, catered food, a no-host bar, and music by Kelly Flemming, Purdon’s Crossing, and the Earle of Newton. For more information and a preview of the auction, visit empowingcaregivers.org.
