We Can Help Wade. A few short weeks ago our friend Wade Mundinger suffered a disabling stoke in the Dallas/Fort Worth airport returning to Marco Island from attending his nephew’s wedding. Wade’s joyous weekend trip surrounded by friends and family ended abruptly when he collapsed and was rushed to the ICU unit of Los Colinas Hospital and was diagnosed with having suffered a series of mini strokes which limited his motor skills and his ability to speak clearly. After being transferred to UT Southwestern Hospital in Dallas to stabilize him he was released after several days with the help of his brother John. Wade stayed in Dallas with his good friends William and Kristen Aiuto who cared for him and helped prepare him for his trip back home to Marco Island.

We Can Help Wade. The physical challenges Wade faces from the stroke are challenging and will require rehabilitation for several months and the medical bills are insurmountable. Wade is determined though to recapture his life and return to work next season.

We Can Help Wade by attending a fundraiser for Wade June 28th at Arturo’s restaurant, at 6:00 pm. The fundraiser for Wade Mundinger is being planned by Arturo’s and St. Mark’s Episcopal Church.  Arturo’s will host a sit down dinner with your choice of: appetizers, House or Caesar salad, choice of entrée, plus complimentary wine and a cash bar. A Silent Auction and the cash bar will begin at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. The dinner is limited to the first 100 people so make your reservation by calling St. Mark’s at 239.394.7242.

We Can Help Wade. We all know Wade Mundinger by his infectious smile, his sense of humor, his love of Marco Island and his friends, his eagerness to volunteer, whether it’s a fundraiser for St. Mark’s or his passionate work at Camp Able with kids with disabilities for a week every summer at DaySpring. Before his tragedy you could find Wade either shucking oysters at the Snook Inn or behind the bar at Arturo’s. Wade’s eagerness to help others is infectious and an admirable quality. He’s everywhere on Marco Island and he needs our help. If you can’t attend the fundraiser June 28th please consider sending your donation to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Attn: Wade, 1101 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island, Fl, 34145.
