Date:11/26/2008

Oregon wineries auction special Pinot Noirs to benefit healthcare services for seasonal vineyard workers and their families. In addition to supporting this cause for 17 years, producers preview outstanding 2007 vintage.

Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 26, 2008 -- Patrons of Salud! The Oregon Pinot Noir Auction contributed generously to the 17th annual benefit with animated bidding on unique, premium wines and exciting oral and silent auction items. Over $735,000 was raised, down just 5.4% from the 2007 record of $778,125.

Held November 7 and 8,
Salud! was the first US wine industry fundraiser of consequence to be held since the economic downturn. "Going into the weekend, we knew that the economy and election would certainly have an impact, but such a minimal decrease speaks volumes for the quality of the Pinot Noirs, the Oregon wine community and our guests who understand that the need for Salud! services has never been greater," said co-chair Amy Wesselman of Westrey Wines. "This outstanding show of support says a great deal for our respect for a workforce without whom the wines we all enjoy wouldn't be possible."

Speaking on behalf of the 3,000 seasonal vineyard workers and their family members who received health education and services through Salud! in 2008 alone, Clinical Services Manager Leda Garside RN, thanked the 430 guests for their caring and support: "Every dollar is stretched to the max and with your help we are able to continue our services and outreach for another year. Your goodwill makes a direct difference to someone's life."

The two-day event ranks among the Northwest's top fundraisers and was an opportunity to preview 2007 vintage Pinot Noirs from Oregon's premier wine producers. The highlight of Saturday's black tie dinner was the Special Appeal paddle raise that generated $153,300, energized by pledge challeng
