The Wine Auction

Regions Hospital - Wine Auction

Save the date! The 25th Annual Wine Auction will be celebrated on Saturday, September 20, 2014.

In its first 24 years, the Wine Auction has raised millions of dollars to help Regions strengthen its current programs and create innovative new ones. In the past five years, event proceeds have supported a new Parkinson’s Center, a Center for Spine and Spinal Cord Injury and the hospital’s status as Minnesota’s first Level I Pediatric Trauma Center. The 2013 Wine Auction alone raised $770,000.

In 2014 we will celebrate the 25th Annual Wine Auction, allowing us to reflect on the event’s accomplishments and look to the future of care. Our goal is to raise $1 million, but we also want to make sure participants have a good time, with a mix of fine wine and food, music from local artists and silent and live auctions.

We hope you can join us for this premier fundraising event. For more information, please contact Regions Hospital Foundation at 651-254-2376 or email

2013 Wine Auction proceeds will support Regions Emergency Medical Services

To ensure the health of our fellow community members, we must reach them before they arrive at a hospital. That’s why our Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department acts as a resource for ambulance services, police departments, fire departments and other community first responder agencies, giving them the medical direction, education and quality assurance services they need to provide the best care to residents at the point of injury or illness. Regions EMS is also a national leader in research, resulting in advances in pre-hospital care for airway management, cardiac care and the treatment of cardiac arrest patients.

Now, with proceeds from Regions Hospital Foundation’s 2013 Wine Auction, EMS will further improve the services it provides to first responders and the community:

  • It will develop a community paramedic program, filling a vital gap in our community’s health care delivery model; community paramedics are advanced life support personnel who provide non-emergency care to patients who do not qualify for traditional home care services
  • It will centralize management of the hospital’s injury prevention efforts in the community while expanding current programs and considering new opportunities
  • It will improve the medical oversight and coordination of care provided at mass gathering events such as the Minnesota State Fair
  • It will further develop one of the first accredited EMS fellowship programs in the country
