WMMC Auxiliary Hosts 10th Annual Ice Cream Social August 4th

 


Warrensburg, MO (July 2, 2019) — As if receiving a tasty treat isn’t reason enough to purchase a ticket to the WMMC Auxiliary’s Ice Cream Social, you can also help support the Auxiliary’s largest fundraiser. On Sunday, Aug. 4 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, the WMMC Auxiliary will host its 10th
Annual Ice Cream Social in the WMMC Courtyard Café just inside the Main Entrance. Attendees may enjoy ice cream, a homemade dessert and a beverage for $4 or purchase tickets at the door for $5.

This year the proceeds will be used to purchase a 39500 Series OAE Hearing Screener for pediatric patients at Building Blocks Pediatrics for $3,829.

“This screening tool is designed to address the challenges of screening infants and toddlers with minimal cooperation needed, as well as preschool through school-age children,” said Sharon Franklin, Auxiliary President. “This will help determine if they are experiencing a loss of hearing at a much earlier age.”

Last year, the WMMC Auxiliary welcomed 405 attendees which beat the record of 400 from the very first year’s Ice Cream Social in 2010, raising more than $3,400.

For tickets, visit the Wishing Well Gift Shop inside the hospital, or contact Teresa Collins, Volunteer Services Coordinator, at (660) 262-7466 or tacollins@wmmc.com. Attendees may also purchase tickets at the door on Sunday, Aug. 4 for $5.
