Ben Nemtin.

The Tidewell Foundation is hosting a free community celebration that will feature author and inspirational speaker Ben Nemtin, along with a donation challenge. The virtual event will take place 9-10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Those who donate from the beginning of the event through the end of December will have their impact doubled, thanks to The Quent and Helen Evans Charitable Fund and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, which have committed to making a $20,000 dollar-for-dollar donation match.

The Dec. 1 event, supported by Lincoln Financial Group, will share an inspiring message from Nemtin to help reconnect people to their goals for the coming year and beyond. Tidewell is a nonprofit foundation that provides support to Tidewell Hospice and health care companies within the Stratum Health System family.
