Volunteers from the Door County Medical Center Auxiliary are making a huge impact while learning new skills. Over 200 volunteers have worked the monetary equivalent of $287,000 for the Auxiliary in 2017. Cheryl Wederquist, public relations officer for the Auxiliary, says the volunteers are invaluable ambassadors for the hospital and clinic.
Men and women of the Auxiliary volunteer hours in support of DCMC facilities, staff, patients, and families, including the parking valet service and gift shop at the medical center. Area sponsored events over the course of the year include the House and Garden Walk, and the Angel Ball which raised well over $20,000. Wederquist also says the Auxiliary provides support to the dental clinic and scholarships for local students pursuing medical careers.

At a recent event, Mary Carlisle, Door County Medical Center Auxiliary President, presented the DCMC’s Chief Administrative Officer, Brian Stephens, a check for $38,000. These funds were raised during the Auxiliary’s annual House and Garden Walk and will go to support the DCMC Dental Clinic. The Dental Clinic provides dental care to low-income families
