On Saturday, September 14, 2019 the Point Washington Medical Clinic (PWMC) hosted their Third Annual Harvest Moon Celebration Fundraiser and raised a total of $51,000. PWMC is a non-profit, independent 501(c)3 organization that operates as a no-fee, volunteer driven, primary clinic located in Santa Rosa Beach.
This year’s event saw more attendees than ever before. The weekend kicked off with a community yoga session at the RUN/SUP Boathouse in WaterColor that drew more than 50 locals, and a record breaking 200 people attended the main event on Saturday evening at Ruskin Place in Seaside. Funds were raised through ticket and t-shirt sales, raffle tickets, and personal donations. There was an extensive silent auction with 135 items, as well as an exciting live auction featuring a piece of artwork painted during the main event by local artist, Maxine Orange. The money raised will directly benefit and assist with the clinic’s day-to-day operational costs and expand their hours and treatments for their numerous patients.
The volunteers, staff and supporters of PWMC have dedicated hours of their time, leading to the expansion of the clinic’s hours to a second day of free health care to those in need. The free clinic is now open on Mondays and Wednesdays in order to accommodate more patients.
PWMC has announced its capital campaign where they will be breaking ground on a new facility in the coming year. Exact details and dates will be announced soon. Currently they operate on a pop-up basis out of the Point Washington United Methodist Church and are bursting at the seams for space. Details are still being finalized, but the money raised from this year’s Harvest Moon Celebration will propel the clinic into its future plans of expansion.
