A non-profit organization, Wolfson Children's Hospital relies on charitable donations to provide world-class care for all children in the region.
The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise is gearing up for its 2nd Annual Amelia Island International Wine and Food Tasting fundraiser whereby proceeds will go to Wolfson Children’s Hospital. As part of the planning, the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jerry Bridgham visited the Rotary meeting on Friday, February 7th to give the group an update on all the events happening at Wolfson. In addition, Dr. Bridgham provided an overview of all the services that Wolfson Children’s Hospital provides to all children in need, particularly in the counties of Nassau, Baker, Clay, Duval, and St. John’s Counties.
Wolfson has been very successful in its growth and breadth of services in part due to its various affiliations with other medical organizations such as NE Florida Pediatric Society, Nemours Childrens Clinic, University of Florida College of Medicine Jacksonville, and the Mayo Clinic.
A non-profit organization, Wolfson Children’s Hospital relies on charitable donations to provide world-class care for all children in the region. With the aid of an initial $500,000 donation from the Wolfson Family Foundation, the hospital opened in 1955 as a place for all children to be admitted and treated without regard to creed, religion, race or financial position. That original mission remains today.

The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise meets every Friday at 7:30 a.m. at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club. For more information about the club or to attend a morning breakfast meeting, please contact president, Mark Dennis, at mark@A1Awealthmanagement.com or go to www.ameliaislandrotary.com.
