New Hope Clinic’s major fundraiser features an auction, raffle, music and more on October 23.

On Sunday, October 23, 2022 from 3-6pm at the Southport Community Building,

New Hope Clinic’s Art with Heart fundraiser is returning after three years with a live auction, a silent auction with in-person and online bidding options, a raffle, door prizes, live music by Blues DeVille, dancing, heavy hors d’oeuvres and beer and wine. Artist Dan McGraw will paint during the event and donate that piece for the auction. The online auction will be live October 13 to 23. Tickets are $50 per person.

Sponsors, program advertisers and donations of auction items/services are still needed to support this important event, which raises funds for New Hope Clinic’s charitable healthcare programs.

New Hope Clinic is a volunteer-driven free clinic that has provided essential healthcare services to many of the most medically vulnerable adults in Brunswick County since 1998. The need is great in our area, with the county’s poverty rate exceeding 14.1%. The majority of the clinic patients have incomes that fall below the poverty line; these are the working poor and the unemployed who do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare and cannot afford private health insurance. New Hope Clinic is the local community’s answer to give low-income, uninsured people access to healthcare in a patient-centered setting, rather than in an emergency room.

Their main clinic in Boiling Spring Lakes is a one-stop location where patients can receive high-quality medical and dental care, prescription medications, diagnostic testing and health education provided by caring community members. There is also a satellite clinic co-located with the Brunswick Family Assistance Agency in Shallotte. Last year, the small staff and 133 volunteers, who contributed 8,738 hours of service, provided 5,148 medical visits and 15,668 free 30-day prescriptions. Unfortunately, the need for essential healthcare services is much greater. Many of our best local doctors, dentists, pharmacists and others give their time for this important cause. There’s always a need for additional compassionate volunteers.

New Hope Clinic, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, stretches every penny received with the power of their volunteers, but funds are essential. In 2021 on a $641,299 cash operating budget, the Clinic provided more than $4,812,073 worth of services and medications.

The clinic is dependent on grants and donations so their upcoming major fundraiser, Art with Heart, is critical to continuing their programs.

Sponsors and patrons (both businesses and individuals) as well as original artwork and silent auction donations are needed in order to make this a successful event. There are sponsorship support opportunities from $75 to $5,000.
