Go Hog Wild with the OMC Foundation!
Hog Wild is going to the movies!
The Ninth Annual Hog Wild presented by North Olympic Healthcare Network (NOHN) will be held at Field Arts & Events Hall on Saturday, June 17th at 5:00 PM.
Traditionally, a night of games, suds and grub, this playful event will now be held at the newly opened Field Arts & Events Hall. The fun and games will continue as guests enjoy stunning views of both the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains while dining on a cinema inspired meal, followed by the screening of a classic movie in the state-of-the-art events theater.
Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase equipment for the Peninsula Children’s Clinic and to also support the OMC Healthcare Scholarship Fund.
The biggest challenge facing the healthcare industry in the nation is a lack of employees in all disciplines.
Working with OMC, the Foundation hopes to alleviate that by starting a scholarship program for current employees, college students, people interested in starting a second career, and high school graduates who want to go into the healthcare field, with a heavy emphasis on those who want to attend Peninsula College. Currently two-thirds of PC students end up working at the hospital.
“We’re pleased to partner with the OMC Foundation on the Hog Wild event” said NOHN CEO Michael Maxwell, MD. “We are grateful for the Foundation’s generosity in support of our patients and are happy to be a part of its efforts to promote better healthcare for the community.”
