VCMRF Ventura County Medical Resource Foundation

Silent/Live Auction Donation Form

Since 1956, the Ventura County Medical Resource Foundation, with the generous support of the community, has been able to provide student healthcare scholarships, dental and medical programs for children from low-income families, assessment and treatment for drug-exposed infants and children, chronic disease care and healthcare screenings to low-income seniors, and state-of-the-art medical equipment at hospitals and their ambulatory care clinics. Without quality healthcare, everyday life becomes daunting from taking care of family, to attending school or work, to being a productive member of the community.

 

We are asking for your help – many new items are needed for our Silent and Live Auction to make this event a continued success. Below is the Auction Item Donation Form, please fill out and return at your earliest convenience.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact VCMRF at 805 641-9800.

2019 Bid Winner Testimony:

"I just returned from Huatulco with 3 of my closest friends. We did not know what to expect, but all we knew was that we were going to Mexico to relax after the Holidays and enjoy the beach for a week.  What we experienced was much more than just the beach and relaxation.  I loved the location of the condo, the surrounding areas, the food and the people we met along the way were just truly amazing. One of the staff members we met actually drove out to the airport on her own to meet us as we were leaving and brought tamales her grandmother had made and other souvenirs for all of us. It was so very kind, generous and unexpected! It was truly both touching and the cherry on top of an incredible trip. Thank you so much for donating the week at Huatulco to VCMRF so that others can have this amazing experience. I’m truly gratefully for the memories we made in Huatulco."
