Founded in 1947, the Alliance with the Washoe County Medical Society (AWCMS) has worked hard to follow their mission to advance the health of our community through educational and philanthropic works, health advocacy programs, and support of the Washoe County Medical Society. Their vision is to work together with community partners to promote quality medical care and better health for Northern Nevadans.
This year, they celebrated their 3rd annual fundraiser gala Saturday, February 22, 2020, at the Atlantis Resort Casino in Reno. Net proceeds of the funds raised are to be shared by two local programs: The Eddy House (works with homeless and at-risk youth to develop life and job skills) and For Kids Foundation.
AWCMS member Christine Lazzarini of Gypsy Moth Productions produced this video to demonstrate just one of the many children For Kids Foundation has assisted.
