Welcome to the 6th Annual Grape Adventure
As the summer sun sets behind the trees, join us at REX HILL Winery in Newberg for an evening of fine wine, a farm-to-table dinner provided by Reedville Cafe and entertainment, all in support of Virginia Garcia’s health care and outreach to migrant and seasonal farm workers.
There are two amazing ways to enjoy Grape Adventure this year.
Join us mid-afternoon at the newly opened Beaverton Wellness Center for a champagne tour. We will take care of the driving to and from REX HILL. Or, you can choose to meet us at REX HILL at 5:30 for a beautiful evening under the stars.
It will be a night to remember for a cause that’s close to your heart.
Reserve your tickets today and plan to join us for an amazing evening under the stars.
The Mission of the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center is to provide high quality, comprehensive, and culturally appropriate primary health care to the communities of Washington and Yamhill counties with a special emphasis on migrant and seasonal farm workers and others with barriers to receiving health care.
Our vision is simple. We work to ensure that all people in our service area have access to timely, high-quality health services, enabling them to achieve the best possible health outcome.
History of Virginia Garcia
In 1975, beautiful six-year old Virginia Garcia and her farm worker parents traveled from their home in Mission, Texas to California and Oregon to work in the fields. Along the way Virginia cut her foot, and by the time they reached Oregon, it had become infected. Due to economic, language and cultural barriers to health care, Virginia died from what should have been an easily treatable wound.
Moved to action by Virginia’s unnecessary death, the community quickly rallied together to open the first Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center in a three-car garage, determined to prevent similar tragedies from occurring.
Today, Virginia Garcia provides healthcare services to more than 45,000 patients a year in Washington and Yamhill Counties at our five primary care clinics and pharmacies, five dental offices, six school-based health centers and one women's clinic. We also provide outreach to schools, community health fairs and to migrant and seasonal farm workers at local camps and commercial nurseries through our mobile clinic.
