SCMA is Seeking Silent Auction items
Benefiting the  Health Career Scholarship Program
As a health professional you understand the rigors of attaining a career in medicine.  Medical families know full well that it is a hard-fought struggle requiring dedication, discipline and immense fortitude in the face of daunting financial expense. Having this empathy of "what it takes" makes it all that more compelling for all of us to help pave the way for the next generation who may well choose to practice right here in Sonoma County. 

This promise of help is done through a longstanding tradition. Since 1962 the Sonoma County Medical Association and Alliance have awarded scholarships to outstanding high school seniors and qualified students at the undergraduate and graduate levels who will enter a medically related field. These scholarships are made possible through annual donations and events like this one. 
 
As a donor to the Silent Auction you will be recognized by having your name appear in the SCMA Gala program and in the Spring/Summer publication of Sonoma Medicine, which is sent to the entire medical community. Our deadline for receiving items and/or your donations is December 31, 2019
