Volunteers in Medicine of South Jersey (VIM) is celebrating 20 years of providing health care to uninsured and underinsured residents of South Jersey by hosting a 20th anniversary celebration fundraiser at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Flanders Hotel in Ocean City.

Tickets to attend the celebration cost $120 per person and are available through VIM’s website, www.vimsj.org (click the “Events” link on the homepage).

During the celebration on Sept. 22, VIM will spotlight two 20th anniversary honorees: Board of Trustees member Micki Goldberg, who first began volunteering at VIM 20 years ago, and the County of Cape May, for the ongoing support VIM has received from County officials during the past two decades.

Additionally, the Foster-Karney Foundation will be honored as VIM’s 2022 Community Partner of the Year. Eliot Kaplan will be feted as VIM’s 2022 Doctor of the Year and Nancy Juelis, RN, will be named 2022 Volunteer of the Year.

“The care provided at VIM is life-changing,” said Executive Director Jacqueline Meiluta. “Thanks to community support, we are able to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need.”

Volunteers in Medicine is a volunteer-based organization that provides quality health care and preventative medical services in a caring, welcoming environment.

In 2002, VIM first opened the doors of its clinic on Route 9 in Cape May Court House to struggling residents of Cape May County.
