Olympic Medical Center Foundation works throughout the year on five different fundraising events, through which, the monies donated go toward different branches of Olympic Medical Center, and also several other local charities.
Red, Set, Go!
The year starts out with the Red, Set, Go! Luncheon held each February. This event raises money for heart health care and also raises awareness through an educational program and other displays by attending participants.
Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby
Following the Red, Set, Go! Luncheon, all thoughts turn to yellow as the Foundation gears up for the Annual Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby.
The event, now held in June at the Lincoln Park Pond, raises money not only to benefit the Olympic Medical Center, but it also raises funds for the Sequim Rotary and their various functions throughout the community.
Sonny Sixkiller Golf Classic
As July closes and fall approaches, the attention turns to footballâ€¦ and golf. The Annual Sonny Sixkiller Husky Golf Classic brings in renowned University of Washington quarterback Sonny Sixkiller and over 3 dozen other Husky athletic celebrities for a two day fundraising event.
Harvest of Hope Winemakers Gala
Fall brings in the Harvest of Hope Winemakers Dinner and Gala. This special event, which has raised money for the Olympic Medical Cancer Center since 2006, is held each October.
It features wines and a regional inspired menu from places all over the world. Following the meal, attendees can bid on amazing auction items, including trips, arts and crafts, and of course, more wine!
Festival of Trees
The true kickoff to the holiday season for the Foundation happens Thanksgiving weekend with the Annual Festival of Trees weekend.
This major fundraising event features three days of activities for all ages, all amidst a forest of beautifully designed and decorated Christmas trees.
Festival of Trees not only raises money for the Olympic Medical Center, but also for the Port Angeles Exchange Club and other local charities.
