MedWish International is a non-profit organization that collects usable medical supplies and equipment from U.S. health systems and distributes it as humanitarian aid to developing countries. Since 2003, MedWish has kept more than 2.75 million pounds of medical surplus out of landfills and has sent much-needed supplies to more than 90 countries all over the world. MedWish was founded in 1993 in Cleveland, Ohio. For more information about MedWish, visit www.medwish.org or call (216) 692-1685. We’re nearly late to promote this event, but we highly recommend it. MedWish is hosting it’s annual fund raising dinner at the Wickliffe Italian and American Club this Saturday at 6pm. Tickets are $25, but we have a pair to give away. There will also be items auctioned off throughout the evening with the Cleveland Browns as the backdrop. Former Brown Dick Ambrose will be in attendance and signing autographs. Tickets can be purchased through MedWish here. In addition, MedWish is collecting items to send to partner organizations on the east coast assisting in the aftermath of super storm Sandy. “MedWish exists to meet the needs of people in developing countries who don’t have the same resources we have in the United States,” said Josh Kravitz, MedWish executive director, “but because we have such generous and energetic supporters in Northeast Ohio, and because of the extraordinary devastation this storm caused, we knew this was an important civic opportunity to rally this support to help our neighbors.” MedWish will be accepting unopened, non-expired donations of these items. They can be dropped off between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wickliffe Italian-American Club at 29717 Euclid Avenue in Wickliffe. Simply leave a comment on this post to enter to win a pair of tickets. You never know who might be there. There could be a good chance a certain WFNY writer could show up with shirts to give away…
