Attendees can sip on Mint Juleps and other refreshments, enjoy great food and have lots of fun. All proceeds will benefit the Outreach Clinic, the area’s only clinic providing free health care to the low income uninsured.

The Outreach Clinic’s 6th Annual Kentucky Derby Party is a fun and exciting event. Your ticket includes complimentary valet parking, food and open bar. Attendees can enjoy delicious Kentucky Derby food such as Kentucky hot browns and dessert and coffee bars. Sip on a mint julep while you watch the historic Kentucky Derby live on a big screen.

No Kentucky Derby party would be complete without fancy hats and well-dressed ladies and gentlemen. Ladies, come dressed up in your finest and put on your fanciest hat and compete in the Most Beautiful Hat Contest and Most Creative Ladies’ Hat Contest. Gentlemen can vie to win the Dapper Gentlemen Contest.

Debbie Meegan, Executive Director of The Outreach Clinic said, “This fundraiser is a wonderful opportunity to bring awareness about The Outreach Clinic and the important role we play in keeping our community healthy.” Meegan added, “All monies raised will be used for free medical care for the low income uninsured. This event is truly a funfilled FUNraiser. It is a great way to support a very important need in our community and have some fun at the same time.”

The Kentucky Derby Party is The Outreach Clinic’s biggest fundraiser. The clinic, which serves all residents of Hillsborough County, exists thanks to the generosity of individuals, local organizations and churches.

The mission of The Outreach Clinic is to manage and improve the health of the low income, uninsured in Hillsborough County. The clinic provides much needed healthcare to those who do not have health insurance and cannot afford healthcare. Most of those who are served have either a part-time job, receive only min. wage, unemployment compensation or are receiving Social Security Disability.

The Outreach Clinic is located at 517 N. Parsons Ave. in Brandon. For more information and to get tickets, please call 654-1388 or visit www.theoutreachclinic.com.
