Saturday, October 8 is Shop and Dine Day throughout Sturgeon Bay. Local storefront and virtual businesses will donate a portion of their profits to The Healing Project to benefit individuals living with cancer.
The Healing Project, now under the auspices of Door County Medical Center (DCMC), provides free integrative health care services to those living with cancer. Services include acupuncture, energy therapy, massage therapy, nutrition counseling and behavioral health counseling. Integrative therapies have been shown to benefit the physical, mental and spiritual health of those living with cancer at any stage.
“We are grateful for the participation of a variety of businesses whose support will help local patients receive integrative health care,” says Kevin Grohskopf, chief business development officer at DCMC. Healing Project participants receive services from DCMC staff, and the program is overseen by Healing Project Medical Director Dr. Chona Antonio, a primary care physician who also provides acupuncture services. DCMC also partners with HSHS St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center to provide a full range of oncology services through the Door County Cancer Center.
Shop and Dine Day is presented by DCMC and the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center. Participating businesses include: Alley Katz Boutique, Bliss, Cornucopia Kitchen Shop, Door County Eye Associates (shop Friday 10/7), Door County Habitat for Humanity – Restore, Madison Avenue Wine Shop, Monticello on Jefferson, Rogue Theater, Scaturo’s Baking Co. and Cafe, Sherry’s Hallmark, Sunflour Artisan Bakery, T. Simon Jewelers, Wilkins and Olander, Westwood Shores Waterfront Resort, Zoerb’s Paint Store, and online businesses Door County Lavender and Lemon, and Delphinus Naturals.
