OMC Foundation’s Harvest of Hope event going virtual

With health restrictions in place, the popular Harvest of Hope fundraiser is going online.

With health restrictions in place, Olympic Medical Center Foundation and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance are moving a popular local fundraiser online.

The 18th-annual Harvest of Hope Wine & Dinner Gala event is set for 5:45 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, and will once again raise funds for local cancer patients being treated at Olympic Medical Cancer Center.

Organizers say the foundation is looking to raise $100,000 at the event to purchase equipment that “will keep the Center as a world class treatment center.”

Tickets are $60 and include dinner and a bottle of wine available for pick up in Sequim or Port Angeles. Or, “Gold Circle” tickets, going for $125, buys dinner and three bottles of wine.

Get tickets by going to www.omcf.org or by calling 360-417-7144.

The OMC Foundation has donated more than $1.6 million dollars to the cancer center in the past three years, including funds for the nearly-completed center expansion.

At the virtual event, representatives from First Federal and the First Federal Community Foundation will present the Rick Kaps Award, an honor that recognizes organizations and individuals who’ve supported the cancer center.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to help raise funds through the purchase of raffle tickets or live and silent auction items.

Sample live auction items include:

• Russell Wilson autographed football plus home tailgate party

• “Pick Your Paradise,” a choice of a trip to several international destinations

• variety of “instant” wine cellars

• lessons and dinner at the Barhop Brewery in Port Angeles

• trip to Cabo San Lucas, including lodging and airfare
