OMC Foundation amends annual fundraiser events

With the rise in COVID-19 numbers and corresponding restrictions to gatherings by Gov. Jay Inslee this week, organizers of the Olympic Medical Center’s annual Festival of Trees event announced they are canceling part of the event.

Tickets continue to be on sale for the Festival of Trees Gala presented by First Federal, which will be presented virtually 5-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 27.

Tickets are available online at, and can also be purchased by calling 360-417-7144.

Tickets for the gala cost $105 and includes dinner that can be picked up at local restaurants in Port Angeles or Sequim. The gala will be held virtually from 5-8 p.m. on Nov. 27, when the trees and wreaths will be auctioned off.

However, the Teddy Bear Tea and Family Days are cancelled because of the restrictions.

“We live in unique times, and feel badly that we’ve had to cancel the Teddy Bear Tea and Family Days,” OMC Foundation executive director Bruce Skinner said. “However, we feel fortunate that we can still hold the gala auction.”

Now in its 30th year, the annual event is a fundraiser for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation.

For more information, call the Foundation office at 360-417-7144.
