Sipside Lounge to Raise Funds for Garrett Regional Medical Center’s Behavioral Health Campaign

Sipside Lounge will be opening one more time on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM to benefit Garrett Regional Medical Center’s Foundation campaign for behavioral health.

Sipside owners Barb and Pat Franc are delighted to support such an important and needed cause in the community.

“Pat and I are thrilled to have a way to support this great and much-needed cause for our community,” said Barb Franc. “We invite everyone to stop by and see us one more time at Sipside to support GRMC and the Behavioral Health Center.”

The event is open to the public and will feature a cash bar with specialty cocktails, tacos from Don Patron, a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, and live music entertainment by Heart 2 Heart. The evening will also feature several members of the GRMC medical staff serving as guest bartenders.

Event proceeds and all tips will support behavioral health services at GRMC’s Family Health and Wellness Center located at 69 Wolf Acres Drive in Oakland. Since opening in 2019, the demand for mental and behavioral health care and treatment at GRMC’s regional behavioral health center continues to climb.

The Foundation’s behavioral health campaign seeks to enhance the existing facility space through renovation and/or expansion to better serve the needs of patients and the community.
