Jubilee Fundraiser Rescheduled to 2021

Posted: July 1, 2020

Through the years, the NorthBay Wine, Brew & Food Jubilee has faced blistering heat, high winds, rainstorms and even numerous venue changes, but overcoming a global pandemic was something organizers just couldn’t surmount, according to Brett Johnson, president, NorthBay Healthcare Foundation.

The event, originally scheduled for May 16 but rescheduled for August 29, has now been postponed until next year, Brett announced, due to COVID-19 uncertainties.

“It was with a heavy heart that we shared our difficult decision to postpone the celebration with the Foundation Board members, and our loyal sponsors, vendors and ticketholders,” noted Craig Bryan, chair of the 33rd Jubilee.

“Our decision was rooted in the best interests of everyone’s personal health, based on guidelines from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and from state and local health care leaders,” he said. “The event requires a great deal of advance planning and we must be sensitive to our beer, wine and food vendors as they face staffing and supply chain hurdles. And, as always, NorthBay Healthcare must put the health of our community first,” Craig said.

Jubilee organizers implored sponsors to consider rolling their 2020 financial support over to the 2021 event, “in whatever form it may take given our new world order,” so that NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement could continue to provide compassionate, end-of-life care for everyone.

All tickets will be honored for 2021 with no further action on ticketholder’s part. Anyone wishing to support Hospice in 2020 can donate at www.NorthBay.org/donate.

“We are grateful for the support the community has given us in the past, and promise to keep everyone informed as we figure out our next steps,”  noted Dennis Landis, chair of the Foundation Board. “We remain focused on our mission of raising the funds that allow us to provide the care our community needs, when they need it most.”
