The Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is happy to announce its third annual fall fundraiser, The Lowcounry Wine and Beer Festival, which will be held on September 6 at Freshfields Village on Johns Island. Guests will enjoy an array of fabulous wines from around the world, delicious foods, and for the first time at the Festival, fine craft beers. For the wine tastings, guests will receive a specially designed wine glass. There will be drawings for door prizes, a live and silent auction, and jazz music performed by the Cobblestone Trio.
Tickets are $25 each in advance or $30 at the gate and may be purchased at First Federal on Folly Road, as well as at the following locations: the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic, Schoen Ace Hardware, Rosebank Farms Café, Resort Quest, Indigo Books, Guest Services at Freshfields Village, Seabrook Island Real Estate, the Town of Kiawah office, and Kiawah Island Real Estate. All proceeds from the Festival will support the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic.
The Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is a volunteer-based, nonprofit organization that provides health care services at no cost to eligible individuals in the Charleston area. The Clinic is staffed by volunteer medical professionals and administrative staff workers. Medical care is provided by South Carolina licensed physicians and nurses who volunteer their time at the Clinic, and patients generally see the same physician each visit for the management of a chronic disease.
