Donate to Hospice

When you or a loved one is nearing the end of the journey, NorthBay Hospice is ready to help. Our hospice caregivers provide compassionate support for patients and families facing life-limiting illnesses.

The focus of hospice care is to maintain comfort and emphasize care, while also tending to the emotional needs of families and friends. Hospice care is about living, not dying, and neither hastens nor postpones death. It is our desire to help make the final days as comfortable as possible, supporting you and your family physically, mentally, and spiritually. 

In hospice, we acknowledge everyone's inherent worth and dignity. People continue to grow and share, even as they approach the end of life. Emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth does not end when someone is given a terminal diagnosis. Indeed, we have learned that much growth can take place during hospice care.

NorthBay Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medi-Cal, TriCare and many private insurance carriers; the program relies heavily on community donations through the Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, and other fund-raising endeavors.

History

NorthBay Healthcare Foundation’s Solano Wine & Food Jubilee is Solano County’s premiere fund-raising event to support the programs and services of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement. Funds raised through this event help make an array of vital programs possible, including hospice care, bereavement support groups, and community outreach.

Shortly after NorthBay Healthcare established its Hospice & Bereavement program in 1987, a group of area citizens organized the very first Solano Wine & Food Jubilee in support of Hospice & Bereavement in 1988. Held in the social hall of a Fairfield church, the first Jubilee was a wine and cheese party for about 300 people. That night, about $2,000 was raised.

Through the years, the Solano Wine & Food Jubilee has grown exponentially. It has become a perennially sold-out affair and has been held in an array of venues – under a tent in Lagoon Valley, the Jelly Belly factory floor, the Vacaville Skating Center, and even in a C5 hangar at Travis Air Force Base. For many years, it was held under a huge tent at the iconic Nut Tree Complex in Vacaville. In 2017 it returns to the Harbison Event Center adjacent to the Nut Tree in Vacaville. Organizers promise the 30th event will again exceed expectations.
