VANCOUVER, Wash., October 14, 2020 – In response to COVID-19, 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. This annual event will raise money to help the uninsured in Southwest Washington receive free, compassionate, quality health care.

From December 5-10, tune into daily messages on the Free Clinic’s website at as you are taken through a heartfelt journey of how the Free Clinic is living out its mission. The Virtual Holiday Ball and Week of Celebration will kick-off on Saturday, December 5th at 10 a.m. with a special message from Free Clinic Executive Director, Ann Wheelock, along with some other familiar faces. The week of celebration will also include an online auction, a chance to win a beautiful piece of jewelry designed by Vancouver’s own Rand Jeweler, and many Free Clinic stories because, right now, we could all use a reminder that community is so much more than proximity.

“During these times of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we need to counter this with warmth and love. This perspective is guiding our efforts as we prepare to host our first ever Virtual Holiday Ball and Week of Celebration,” explained Pam Knepper, Free Clinic Communications, Development and Outreach Manager. “We want to foster inclusion, camaraderie, and kinship amidst widespread social distancing. There is no better way to honor the community-building spirit on which the Free Clinic was founded 30 years ago. Please plan to join our special online celebration, so we can continue to offer compassionate care-always.”
