Corks in the Concourse
Due to current restrictions on mass gatherings and future uncertainties, we are sad to announce the cancellation of our annual fundraiser "Corks in the Concourse." These are unprecedented times, and we want to make sure that everyone stays safe and healthy. It was a difficult decision to make but we feel this is the best option at the moment. We were looking forward to this event and know you were too. We even had an awesome theme picked for this year!
As you know, we are a free museum and "Corks in the Concourse" is a main fundraiser for IWASM. It allows us to continue our day-to-day operations and educational programs. We greatly appreciate all of your past support as well as the support of donors to the event.
Although we won't be gathering in person on Labor Day weekend, there are several ways you can help IWASM reach its fundraising goals. We believe that with your help, we can lessen the impact of the Coronavirus on our mission. Thank you for your support during this challenging time for our organization and our community as a whole.
Five ways you can continue to support IWASM during these uncertain times:
1. Attend one of our smaller wine events being held at CLE Urban Winery on August 5 or Sept. 10 - see the flyer. (Tickets must be purchased prior to event and will not be sold at the door.)
2. Donate an item to be used at one of the auctions held at these events.
3. Buy a raffle ticket for either our current Southwest Airlines Raffle or our 9/11 framed print raffle.
4. See if your employer has a matching donation program and will double your contribution.
5. Make a donation here.
a. Donations of $250 will receive a wine basket of two bottles of wine and two IWASM wine glasses. (Please pick up at the museum at your convenience.)
b. Donations of $100 will receive two IWASM wine glasses. (Please pick up at the museum.)
c. Donations of $50 will receive one IWASM wine glass. (Please pick up at the museum.)
Aug. 1 - Oct. 31, 2020 - Great Lakes Health & Wellness
Everyone is experiencing a bit more stress these days so we have teamed up with Great Lakes Health & Wellness, located in Westlake, Ohio, to treat you to some self-care while helping the museum. There is a special deal for IWASM supporters August 1 – October 31, 2020.
Here’s how it works:
Chiropractic Care: If a New Patient comes to their office and mentions they are with IWASM, their
New Patient exam, consult, and digital x-rays with one of the doctors costs only $49 ($99 value) and that $49 goes directly back to IWASM.
Massage Therapy: If someone gets a massage and mentions they are with IWASM they get $20 off
their first massage and we, again, receive $20 back to IWASM.
Acupuncture: If someone gets their first acupuncture treatment in their office, their New
Acupuncture patient treatment costs $39 ($85 value) and the $39 is donated to IWASM!
It’s that simple! All you have to do is make an appointment to treat yourself or spread the word to your family, friends, and coworkers.
Call them today at 440.895.3500 or visit their site at www.greatlakeshealthohio.com
