16 logoThursday, Sept. 17, The CARE Clinic hosts its 26th Annual Golf Charity at Gates Four Golf and Country Club. This annual event raises funds to help the clinic provide free basic medical and simple dental extraction services to eligible uninsured, low-income adults. By making it a no-frill tournament, the clinic can make sure the most of every donation and registration dollar benefits those in need. Breakfast, beverages and prizes are all donated.

The CARE Clinic does not receive any government funding and relies solely on the generosity of donors, grants and fundraisers. The charity golf tournament is one of three major fundraisers The CARE Clinic hosts each year.

The next Care Dinner is set for Feb. 6, 2021 at 7 p.m. Hosts provide the space, beverages and hors d’oeuvres. The CARE Clinic provides the meal.
