Behind the scenes of the sprawling complex that is Marshall Medical Center, there exists a bevy of bubbling bombshells who comprise the Marshall Hospital Auxiliary, which for more than half a century has been supporting local community health care.

And they’re not done yet.

Members of the auxiliary, easily spotted at any of Marshall’s numerous facilities in their burgundy tunics and bright smiles, will be throwing An Evening of Wine and Roses, a wine tasting event sure to delight the taste buds of local connoisseurs, on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Wilkinson-Hupcey Building, 681 Main St. in Placerville.

The evening will feature flowing flavors from nearly a dozen of the region’s award-winning wineries, along with savory offerings from local restaurants, all to help pay for the new wing at Marshall Hospital that opened at the beginning of this year.

The Marshall Hospital Auxiliary’s more than 100 members pride themselves on their efforts to help the community stay healthy, by promoting local health care that rivals that of any similar region.

Begun in 1959 by “a bunch of doctors’ wives,” the auxiliary boasted among its founding members the late Clara Scheiber, a woman well known for her love of community and selfless contributions. In fact, the Placerville Lions Club named its building at the corner of Pleasant Valley and Missouri Flat roads after the charming philanthropist.

Continuing with the auxiliary’s estimable efforts, this is the eighth year for An Evening of Wine and Roses, with past proceeds going toward furnishing the OB room at Marshall and helping outfit the new emergency room.

This year’s event will be from 7 to 9 p.m. and will feature music by Rachel Cargill of Country with Class.

Wines will be poured by Boeger, Crystal Basin, DiVittorio, Holly’s Hill, Jodar and Lava Cap wineries, Madroña Vineyards, Wofford Acres Vineyard and dk Cellars.

Seven venues will supply tasty treats: Claudia Marie Design Candy, Fit for a King, Hoosegow, Marshall Hospital Cafeteria, Pure Catering and Events, Taste of Thai and Tortilla Flats. There’s sure to be something to tempt everyone with that lineup.

Cuppa Coffee & More will provide hot beverages.

Tickets are $25 each or two for $37.50. At the door, they are $30 apiece.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Marshall Hospital Gift Shop, 530-626-2725, or by calling Marilyn Nunez at 530-672-9798 or Colette Polaski at 530-677-1285.

 

The auxiliary

Auxiliary members recently gathered at the auxiliary’s work room near Marshall Hospital to put together gift baskets that will be auctioned during An Evening of Wine and Roses. Some of  the members of the longstanding beneficial organization paused to reflect on the group’s history of giving to the local community.

“You know, all the volunteers really are from different backgrounds, different walks of life, but we all work hard and we seem to get along beautifully together,” said Jean Gonzales, chair of the Evening of Wine and Roses event.

“I volunteer with the auxiliary because it makes me feel good, helping other people. It’s a nice group of people to work with, very cohesive despite our diverse backgrounds,” she said.

The gift baskets are stuffed with donated items from local businesses and organizations, with everything from gift certificates from Red Hawk Casino to a hand-made purse from Combellack’s.
“Even in an economy that isn’t so great right now, the merchants have been very generous,” said Gonzales. “We really appreciate it.”

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Marshall Hospital Auxiliary may call 530-626-2643. An orientation for new members is coming up in October.
