Women Who CARE (WWC), a premier women’s networking group supported by Fort HealthCare, is hosting a social and networking dinner event at Casual Joe’s BBQ in Whitewater on Thursday, September 19 from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. The event is sponsored in part by PremierBank. Casual Joe’s is located at 319 West James Street in downtown Whitewater. An RSVP is requested by Monday, September 16 by calling the Fort Memorial Hospital Foundation office at (920) 568-5404 or by email to email@example.com.
The evening is highlighted by a cooking demonstration of fall soups hosted by Chef Tyler Sailsbery. In addition to the cooking demonstration, the event will include sampling dishes prepared from The Black Sheep and Casual Joe’s restaurants, both located in Whitewater. A silent auction and 50/50 raffle will also round out the fall social. Attendees are encouraged to network and converse with women from the communities served by Fort HealthCare. Current paid members of WWC may attend at no cost with guests and supporters asked to pay a $25.00 fee to help cover costs and donate to WWC’s ongoing projects.
The fall social event is also a fundraiser for the group’s ongoing project to provide education for Fort HealthCare’s school nurses. Fort HealthCare school nurses serve nine area school districts. They are considered a lifeline for thousands of families with children in the area who need assistance and care during school hours. In addition to the everyday aches and pains that arise, school nurses spend most of their days helping students with chronic and intensive needs for care during school hours. From insulin management, to specialized feeding, to medication administration, school nurses are responsible for coordinating with parents and school staff to make it possible for students to remain engaged in their classes and activities.
WWC is a membership organization with a current focus on improving the health and well-being of youth in our area. The group seeks to build on the simple understanding that the health and well-being of our community is tied to our connections with each other. Gathering for a shared purpose, members build and enhance personal and professional relationships with one another. Together they learn about the health challenges in the region and seek out ways to help our loved ones and neighbors live healthier lives.
Community members interested in learning more about WWC can attend the fall social and all attendees are encouraged to bring a friend or two. To learn more about WWC, please visit www.forthealthcare.com/wwc.
