BLUFFTON JASPER VOLUNTEERS IN MEDICINE HOSTS BOURBON & BUBBLY GALA
BLUFFTON, S.C. – Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine (BJVIM) will celebrate its 10th year anniversary with the annual Bourbon & Bubbly Gala “under the stars” from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 17th at Hewitt Oaks, 205 Stillwell Road, Bluffton. All tickets from the previous postponed date will be honored. If this date is not convenient – would you please consider making your ticket a charitable donation?
Please let us know by November 10th if you will not be able to attend with original ticket purchased. MORE tickets are still available.
Since the opening of the Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine clinic in September of 2011, it has been the dream of the Board of Directors to incorporate a dental program into services offered to our patients. Thanks to generous donations from Sherly & William Magro and additional support from The Bargain Box, The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, Delta Dental of SC, First Non-Profit Foundation, South Carolina Physicians Care Charity and The Truist Foundation this dream has become a reality.
Many of you have supported a past “Bourbon & Bubbly Gala” or “Christmas in July” which were major fundraisers for BJVIM. Proceeds from these events funded vital programs to include patient visits, laboratory tests, imaging services, specialty care referrals, eye glasses and dental appointments. We would like to ask this year, in lieu of purchasing a special event ticket, that you consider the purchase of an “Island Getaway” raffle ticket. The Raffle tickets are $100 each or “Friend of the Clinic” packages of 6-tickets for $500.
The remodeling for the new dental clinic at BJVIM is underway! And we could not be more excited about this addition to our clinic. Walls are down, drain ditches have been dug, the ceiling removed and all bathroom fixtures are gone! This project will take about 11 weeks to complete.
Fraser Construction is working hard to have our dental clinic complete sometime in November so that we may begin treating our patients’ dental needs.
