VANCOUVER — Tickets to the Free Clinic of Southwest Washington’s annual Sam Beall Breakfast are now on sale. Now in its 6th year, this fundraising breakfast raises money to help the Free Clinic live out its mission to provide and facilitate access to free, compassionate, quality health care for children and adults who are otherwise unable to obtain such services.
Named in memory of one of the Free Clinic’s founders, Dr. Sam Beall, a local Vancouver physician, the Sam Beall Breakfast will be held on Thu., April 23 from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at Warehouse 23 in Vancouver.
This annual event provides the opportunity to enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast, win great raffle prizes, learn more about the Free Clinic, and visit with members of the health care and business communities. Tickets are $35 per person and are available for purchase online at freeclinics.org or by calling (360) 313-1388. If you are unable to attend, donations to the Free Clinic can be made at freeclinics.org.
“This Sam Beall Breakfast has special meaning because it is taking place during the Free Clinic’s 30th anniversary year,” said Bill Lockwood, Free Clinic Board President. “Founded in 1990 by Dr. Sam Beall and Father Ed Rankin to address the needs of the underinsured and uninsured in Clark County, the Free Clinic has and continues to have a great impact in our local community. While we have consistently evolved in our efforts to ensure that every member of our community has access to health care, the Free Clinic’s vision of always providing compassionate care has remained the same.”
Vancouver Clinic is the presenting sponsor for the 2020 Sam Beall Breakfast. Other sponsors include Providence, Wells Fargo Advisors, Columbia Bank, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), and Patrick Hildreth Brand & Design.
