Amery, Wis. – After a successful pilot event last year, Amery Hospital & Clinic Foundation will host a Wonderful World of Wine fundraiser Friday, May 31. The event will take place at Farm Table Foundation Restaurant in Amery from 6 to 9 p.m.

The foundation aims to raise $10,000 for the hospital’s Behavioral Health Center, which provides patients experiencing mental health conditions with a comfortable, healing and caring environment.

The Behavioral Health Center provides four primary services: an inpatient short-stay program; structured outpatient program; outpatient counseling for ages 5 and older; and an outpatient program for people with alcohol and other substance abuse conditions.

“We are so grateful for the support from the community for the Behavioral Health Center,” said Joanne Jackson, executive director of Amery Hospital & Clinic Foundation. “Attendees at the fundraiser will provide vital financial resources to ensure we continue to provide high-quality services and equipment to meet the needs of patients and their families in the community.”

The May 31 event is the first in a series of educational wine tastings the foundation is planning, and it features spring Chardonnays from France and California. A second wine event is planned for September.

The evening also includes dinner, a program and opportunity to bid on silent auction items including:

  • Two tickets to a Lambeau Field Packer game with personal roundtrip air flight
  • One-week stay in a private Arizona condo
  • Wine basket
  • Event-featured wine and decanter
  • Select brand name purses
  • Dinner for two with two glasses of wine at Domacin Winebar, Stillwater
The Farm Table Foundation Restaurant in downtown Amery, the site of the event, works to bring local farm produce and proteins direct to consumers. Farm Table features craft cooking, using in-season ingredients from the local community.

Tickets to Wonderful World of Wine are $100 and available until May 27 by calling (715) 268-0319, emailing foundation@amerymedical.com or registering online at amerymedicalcenter.org/foundation.
