Wexford Foundation Supports VIM Campaign Against Breast Cancer

The Wexford Foundation has partnered with Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) in its ongoing campaign against breast cancer! VIM provides close to 800 potentially life-saving screening and diagnostic mammograms annually to our neighbors in need. The Wexford Foundation’s gift ensures that the Mammography Program continues to thrive and that all patients for whom a screening is recommended have access to such.

He paid tribute to the level of charitable giving on the Island and the contribution that the Wexford Charitable Foundation has made to those in need in our community.

Everyone Dancin’ Merrily

This year’s party had us Rockin’ around the Christmas tree!

Every year our Food & Beverage Team sets out to outdo the previous year’s Member Holiday Party- because after all, in all senses, it is THE party of the year. And to no surprise, they did not disappoint.

This year’s party started out with a cocktail hour with passed hors d’oeuvres…from a Live Table and glasses of champagne…from a Champagne Girl. Not familiar with what that is or means, check it out for yourself! Truly a sight!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following cocktail hour, our members enjoyed a plated dinner featuring a Grilled Prime Filet Mignon, Black Truffle Cabernet Demi Glace, Butter Poached Jumbo Maine Lobster Tail, Roasted Winter Vegetables and Trio of Potatoes. 

Later, they headed back inside the tent, enjoyed some sweet treats from the Dessert Stations, then hit the dance floor where they danced the night away to Blue Tips Rhythm Revue!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Twas truly a night to remember! Happy Holidays from Wexford!

Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town

Christmas spirit is in full swing around the Club!

We kicked off the holiday season Saturday, December 2, with our 6th annual Holiday Boat Parade throughout the harbour.  This year’s light show on the water was not to be missed! Not only did we have six Wexford boats participate, but also a visiting boat from our neighbors at Harbour Town Yacht Club. The decoration themes ranged from classic red & white to Santa’s Packaging Express to the Grinch’s Whoville. Our evening was full of merry and bright, for sure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then on Sunday, we had our annual holiday favorite for kids, Gingerbread Decorating and Santa Brunch!  Over 30 children participated in the gingerbread house decorating.  Then, following the gingerbread houses, we had a special visit from the man himself, SANTA!
