“Fall into the Holiday Spirit” with the McKenzie Health System Auxiliary

Inviting the community to get into the holiday spirit, the McKenzie Health System Auxiliary is hosting a special “Fall into the Holiday Spirit” event on November 22. With a silent auction of fall and holiday décor, the event will be hosted by the McKenzie Auxiliary to raise funds to support the purchase of two Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for McKenzie Orthopedics and McKenzie Telehealth Clinic.

Local sponsors can create or purchase their own holiday décor (centerpieces, wreaths, trees, porch decorations, wall decor, and more) and display it at their place of business through November 21, when everything will be moved to Bench Warmers, 440 W. Sanilac Road in Sandusky. On November 22, doors will open at 7:00 p.m. with bidding until 9:00 p.m. Attendees can also indulge in warm holiday cocktails and a delicious dessert bar while enjoying this wonderful evening for a great cause!

“An AED is a device that checks a person’s heart and delivers an electric shock if it has stopped beating normally. If a person suddenly collapses, they may be suffering from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Having this equipment available can make a real difference,” said Emma Navarro, Holiday Event Committee Chair. “We are excited to celebrate with sponsors and the local community, and to support the purchase of this lifesaving equipment for two of our McKenzie clinics.”

A limited number of tickets, which are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, can be purchased at the McKenzie Gift Shop, Front Lobby, and Outpatient Lobby as well as at the Tribune Recorder Leader in Sandusky and from any member of the McKenzie Auxiliary. The event is for adults only (21 and up).
