Last November I had the chance to spend the morning at MedWish for a Blogger Volunteer Day. Although it meant waking up before 6am on a Saturday, getting to see the effects of MedWish’s unique mission was more than worth it.
In Northeast Ohio, we are very lucky that our hospitals are filled with an abundance of medical supplies. Unfortunately, there are many areas of the world where this is not the case and doctors have to make do with things like fishing line instead of sutures.
MedWish strives to match these healthcare professionals with the 500,000+ pounds of usable surplus that come through their door each year. However, to keep these supplies out of landfills and get them to the doctors, nurses and humanitarians that need them, MedWish needs both our time and financial support.
Which is where you and MedWish’s BAND AID BASH come in.
On April 27, MedWish is celebrating their 20th anniversary with an evening of celebrity chef magic, crafty cocktails and rocking out at MedWish’s warehouse on Cleveland’s eastside.
And I’m giving away 2 tickets to it!
Starting at 7pm that night, Hodge’s owner and Cleveland food truck master Chris Hodgson will be putting together a delicious menu, while Best of Cleveland mixologist Joseph DeLuca shakes things up behind the bar. Once you’ve had your fill of food, Party Crashers crashes the Bash with a raucous dance party.
Of course, the biggest reason to attend are the recipients, patients and lives who will benefit from this fundraiser:
Tickets are $150 and can be purchased at medwish.org/bab2013. You can also enter to win 2 tickets in my Band Aid Bash Giveaway!
