The Free Clinic of Southwest Washington will transition its annual in-person Holiday Ball to a six-day Virtual Holiday Ball and Week of Celebration, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event raises money to help the uninsured in Southwest Washington receive free, compassionate, quality health care, according to a Free Clinic press release.
The ball will run Dec. 5 through Dec. 10. It will kick off at 10 a.m. Dec. 5. Daily messages will run on the Free Clinic’s website at https://freeclinics.org/virtual-ball/.
The event will also include an online auction and a chance to win a piece of jewelry designed by Vancouver’s Rand Jeweler. To register, visit freeclinics.org.
“During these times of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we need to counter this with warmth and love,” said Pam Knepper, Free Clinic communications, development and outreach manager. “This perspective is guiding our efforts as we prepare to host our first ever virtual ball and week of celebration.”
