Fifth ‘Hog Wild’ fundraiser event features rib cook-off

Sequim Health and Rehabilitation and Crestwood Health and Rehabilitation are once again presenting sponsors of an event that the Olympic Medical Center Foundation will stage at Harbinger Winery.

“Hog Wild — A Night of Games, Suds and Grub” is set for 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, features a rib cook-off between local physicians and other medical providers, Harbinger wines, local brews and several games where attendees can win prizes.

Proceeds from the event are used to purchase equipment for the Peninsula Children’s Clinic.

Tickets are $35 and include dinner and beverage; get tickets online at or by calling 360-417-7144.

Harbinger Winery is at 2358 US Highway 101-West, Port Angeles.

“Sequim Health and Rehabilitation and Crestwood Health and Rehabilitation are two of our largest sponsors and donors,” foundation president Duane Wolfe said. “They have stepped forward significantly to help better the lives of patients at Olympic Medical Center.”

Ed Ebling, Sequim Health and Rehab Administrator, said, “Since we are both in the health care business, we are pleased to partner with the Foundation and OMC. We have sponsored and donated to the foundation for several years now, and we are pleased to be a part of the effort to make our local medical center a great rural center.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to make a difference,” Crestwood Health and Rehabilitation Administrator Jason Segar said.

The two facilities will also continue to be the presenting sponsor of Festival of Trees and be involved in several other Foundation events, including Harvest of Hope — which benefits the OMC Cancer Center — and the Red, Set, Go Heart Luncheon, which benefits cardiac services at the hospital.
