Check out the newest fundraising event for the OMC Foundation!
Olympic Medical Center Foundation is happy to announce a new event coming up in August featuring local Microbrews, games, and fantastic prizes.
The brand new event, dubbed "Hog Wild - A Night of Games, Suds, and Grub" will take place at Barhop Brewery at 124 W. Railroad Ave. on August 23rd, and will feature a pig roast, Barhop Micro Brews, and games where attendees can win prizes.
All donations from the public received will go toward funding the capital improvements needed to keep the aquatic therapy pool at Olympic Medical Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in Port Angeles operational.
Persons who are unable to attend the fundraiser can send checks to the Foundation at 928 E Caroline St., Port Angeles 98362, earmarked "Support the Therapy Pool" (100 percent of amount given will be donated to OMC for the therapy pool improvements.
After hearing of the imminent closure of the therapy pool in early July, an anonymous donor has committed to donating $25,000 -- half of the $50,000 needed to purchase a new pool liner and other needed renovations -- if the donation is matched. Because of the presenting sponsors' donation, Foundation officials are confident that they can raise the additional $25,000 needed to make necessary capital improvements in the therapy pool. The liner is expensive because of the pool's features, which includes an underwater treadmill and an adjustable floor.
"We have sponsored and donated to the Foundation for several years now, and we are pleased to be a part of the effort to make our local Medical Center a great rural center," said Sequim Health and Rehabilitation Administrator Ed Ebling. "We appreciate the opportunity to make a difference," said Crestwood Health and Rehabilitation Administrator Michael Littman.
"The Foundation will give 100 per cent of monies that are donated for this project," said Executive Director Bruce Skinner.
