Perham Health Foundation to host Blues at Brew Sunday

The post-acute and short-stay unit under construction at Perham Living will benefit from the money raised at the Blues at Brew fundraiser, set for Sunday, Sept. 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Brew Ales and Eats on Main Street in Perham.

The Brew was filled to capacity for last year’s Blues at Brew fundraiser for the Perham Health Foundation. Organizers have set a goal of $32,000 for the purchase of equipment for Transitions, a short-term therapy center under construction at Perham Living.

The annual event is hosted by Perham Health Foundation and typically is used to purchase equipment that benefits patients of Perham Health or Perham Living.

This year, organizers have set a goal of $32,000 to purchase equipment for Transitions, the post-acute care and short-stay rehabilitation for patients with medically complex needs who are recovering from surgery, injury, or illness. On the purchase wish list is a three-in-one training staircase, motorized parallel bars and a Nustep unit. The new therapy center is expected to be completed in November.

As the name implies, the event will have a New Orleans blues flare including a menu of creole-inspired cuisine, including a shrimp and crawfish boil, red beans and rice, cornbread and bourbon chicken skewers. A Bloody Mary bar will also be set up.

"The Brew is doing an excellent job," said Sue Von Ruden, Community Relations Director for Perham Health.

A silent auction and raffle is also planned again this year, she said, and David Lee will be performing blues music as part of his repertoire.

Last year, Blues at Brew raised $26,000 which helped purchase items for memory stations at Perham Living's Northwinds.

Tickets for Sunday's fundraiser are $65 per person and include the dinner, Bloody Mary bar, music, and door prizes. For additional information or to purchase tickets, visit perhamhealth.org or call 218-347-1308.
