Join the Doctors’ Salute to Senator Sheila Kuehl
“Lifetime Achievement Award”
Sunday, October 21, at 11:30 AM
at LA’s Catalina Jazz Club
Dear California OneCare Supporters,
As a California OneCare and single payer supporter, you know only too well how much we all owe to former State Senator Sheila Kuehl for her unwavering fight for true health care reform in California. Our friends at PNHP-California are presenting this Salute and Jazz Brunch Gala and Fundraiser and you are invited.
Senator Sheila Kuehl authored landmark legislation, SB-840, that would have transformed this state and led the nation to adopt a single payer health care system to cover all residents. Senator Kuehl’s efforts pushed through positive votes in both the Senate and Assembly in both 2006 and 2008. Then Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, vetoed both bills, calling the bill “socialized medicine.”
I’m sure many of you will want to extend your thanks to both Senator Kuehl and to the PNHP-CA team for their consistent advocacy for single payer legislation in California. This Jazz and Champagne Brunch event is a fund raiser with both live and silent auctions and all are welcomed, on a first-come basis.
For those of you who would like to support the work of PNHP-California but can’t make it to the gala, please consider purchasing tickets and donating them for use by our CaHPSA students and/or members with limited income.

Thanks for your continued support for the California OneCare Campaign and for single payer reform in California. With your help, WE WILL WIN.
