Clinic's Fundraiser Gets a New Look
Moore Free Care Clinic is growing and so is "Dining in the Pines." This year the area's popular "friendraiser" will take on a new name, "Moore Dining in the Pines," and a new format to meet the growing support from the community.
"Moore Dining in the Pines" will be hosted all over Moore County the week of Oct. 19-25. Hosts can sign up to hold a private party at their homes for any day or night of the event's week -- with the proceeds going to the benefit the free clinic.
"We heard from so many of our friends that they'd really like to share a leisurely evening together," says Bobbi Erdman, chairwoman of the fundraiser. "The event has become so popular that we decided to expand the dining portion of the evening, since that's what everyone loves about it. Now, we can involve so many more and help the clinic to even a greater degree than in years past."
Last year the event hosted over 600 guests and raised $65,000 in one night, which was used to purchase medications for clinic patients.
"Moore Dining in the Pines" asks volunteer hosts to invite their friends to their party. The committee provides the invitations, which include a donation card that is mailed back to the committee. The guests are asked to make a donation of $35, $50, $75, or more, to the clinic. The host's donation is the dinner party, and tax receipts are available.
Those interested in hosting a dinner party or who want more information can contact Kathy Lannon at 235-9232 or Ginger Lash at 215-0002.
