Thyme Café and Market and Westside Family Health Center (WFHC) will throw Buy Local, Give Local pre-event this Thursday, Sept. 3.
It will be held from 4 pm to 8:30 pm at Thyme Café and Market at 1630 Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica.
Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting and fun summer atmosphere while supporting a great, local business and giving back to a great, local cause.
Bring the whole family and dine-in or take-out. Twenty percent of wine and retail purchases and 10 percent of food purchases will help WFHC provide quality health care to women, men, and children in need in the community.
Since 1974, WFHC, located in Santa Monica at 1711 Ocean Park Blvd. right next to the Big Blue Bus stop, has been at the forefront of providing outstanding health care and health education to low-income and uninsured women, men and their families who live throughout LA County.
Using the same philosophy of education, empowerment and partnership as the founders, WFHC currently provides five health programs, including Family Practice, Prenatal, Pediatrics, Reproductive Health Services and Community Outreach and Education.
This event will serve as a taste of Buy Local, Give Local week, which is a campaign of Buy Local Santa Monica. Buy Local, Give Local week will kick-off at the Santa Monica Wellness Festival on Saturday, Sept. 12 and go through Sunday, Sept. 20.
During this week, Santa Monica residents and visitors are encouraged to buy from local businesses and in turn, many local businesses give back to a local non-profit.
“We are so grateful to have this generous support from a neighboring business on Ocean Park,” said Debra A. Farmer, WFHC’s President/Chief Executive Officer. “WFHC team members love shopping at Thyme and we are grateful that they are supporting us. Support from our community is imperative to the success of our work and the health of our city.”
