On Thursday, September 3, Thyme Café and Market and Westside Family Health Center (WFHC) will throw Buy Local, Give Local pre-event from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Thyme Café and Market at 1630 Ocean Park Blvd. 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 your wine and retail purchase and ten percent of your food purchase will help WFHC provide quality health care to women, men and children in need in your community.

Since 1974, WFHC, located in Santa Monica at 1711 Ocean Park Boulevard 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, September 12 and go through Sunday, September 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. The whole community benefits!

“We are so grateful to have this generous support from a neighboring business on Ocean Park. 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,” said Debra A. Farmer, WFHC’s President/Chief Executive Officer.
