Serotonin Surge Charities’ annual fundraiser for safety net medical care, and the only appropriate response to our unprecedented times and the challenges faced by the most vulnerable members of our communities.

Our annual fundraiser for safety net medical care was held virtually on the evening of Saturday, January 9th.  Guests were treated to an all-star lineup of entertainment that featured an opening mindfulness moment led by Hawaiian Healer and Master Coach Jeff Bow; Dr. Dave Cosca of Yorba Wines singing an original composition titled “If There Ever Was A Time” from his cabin in Ketchum, Idaho; New York Times best-selling author John Lescroart reading from his suspenseful trial novel, The 13th Juror; former NCAA All-American and current UC Davis women’s tennis coach Bill Maze sharing Wimbledon-worthy strokes and game strategy; commercial airline pilot Steve Amesbury giving us the inside scoop about what he does in the cockpit while the rest of us are munching on pretzels in the passenger cabin; a magical musical performance by Julie Silva, her merry band of ukulele players, and Ukulenny; Evan Lessler, Founder of Adapt Clothing, telling the story of his brand and how he adapted and emerged from a battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia; a testimonial from long time Serotonin Surge Charities sponsor Kelly Kaneski of Kaneski Associates and New York Life; and stories of safety net care from Drs. Christopher Bowlus and Christian Swanson who volunteer through the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society’s SPIRIT Program.   Click here to view a recording of the event.  The passcode is =bmZTM9D
