EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -

News Release: “Raise Spirits, Give Hope...in a Box” is the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic’s pandemic-friendly twist on its annual fundraising event. Instead of gathering at an in-person event, community members have the opportunity to support the Free Clinic by ordering a themed box filled with food and beverages to enjoy at their leisure in their own home. Specially curated by the experts at The Coffee Grounds, each “Raise Spirits, Give Hope...in a Box” has its own unique theme and distinct food and beverage offerings. December’s Box, presented by Charter Bank, Lasker Jewelers, Market & Johnson, Peace Church, Prevea Health, and Frandsen Bank & Trust, is called “Bubbles in a Box.” The Box is filled with with two 375-ml bottles of sparkling wine, three cheese selections, two salami selections, crackers, bread, olives, fig jam, and mixed nuts. Each box costs $100 and contains supplies for 2 people. A limited number of boxes are available for order until Tuesday, December 7, or until they’re sold out. Boxes will be ready for pick up at The Coffee Grounds on Friday, December 10.
