Seabrook Island Tennis Fundraiser for BIFMC

Wednesday, March 9th, the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic benefitted from the generosity of our Seabrook Island Tennis Club members. Over forty-five men and women participated in this tennis event to raise funds for our non-profit medical home so our uninsured neighbors on Johns, Wadmalaw and James Island can continue to obtain healthcare services, at no cost.

BIFMC Board member, Vasco Pickett, and Clinical Charge Nurse, Wanda Weart, shared the BIFMC’s impact on our local communities and stories of patients who have benefitted from the efforts of the 50+ volunteer physicians, nurses and support staff at the clinic with the tennis players. More than half of the volunteers at our medical facility reside on Seabrook Island.

Everyone who participated enjoyed a beautiful day on the courts and a wonderful wine and cheese gathering rounding out the venue. Thanks to the Seabrook Island Tennis Club, our “Miracle on Maybank” clinic can continue to keep islanders healthy and productive.
