While planning the 16th annual WMHS Golf Classic, which includes a pre-event dinner featuring silent and live auctions, the question was raised as to how we could include more of our employees in the fun and festivities. The result: A WMHS Family and Friends Auction featuring both a silent auction and a Chinese basket auction. The Foundation asked health system departments to consider creating themed baskets/boxes/buckets, etc., and over two dozen absolutely amazing “treasure chests” have been created and filled to the brim for bidding. The teamwork, fun, generosity, and imagination have been absolutely incredible. We expected modest offerings…perhaps ten baskets….but no! Twenty-six themed baskets, many containing over $200 worth of items, from “Family Fun Night” to “Chocolate Lovers” to “Wellness” and “Picnic Time.” Each basket is unique and attractive. The auction will take place September 5 and 6 in our auditorium. Many thanks to our employees, who have once again shown their generosity and team spirit.
