4th annual Heart and Soul Gala
Benefitting: Open Arms Health Clinic
ARLINGTON, TEXAS – Open Arms Health Clinic invites all to their 4th annual
Heart and Soul Gala to be held Saturday, March 3, 2018 in the Ruthe Jackson Center Ballroom in Grand Prairie, Texas. Featuring the musical stylings of Legacy 4, attendees will enjoy a night of Motown Magic. After a delicious sit-down dinner, the evening will include dancing until 11:00, a performance by artist Lance Brown, a wine pull, games, and both a silent and a live auction that includes three days on San Juan Island, WA, a week in a hill top home in Angel Fire, New Mexico, and a hand-carved rocking horse sporting the Cowboy Football insignia, a collector’s item commissioned also by Sarah Palin, Kay Bailey Hutchinson and former governor Rick Perry.
To support this extraordinary free clinic, celebrities and community leaders will be in attendance at the Gala and the Building Dedication Ceremony to be held Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 10:00–12:00 in their new building located at 3311 Little Road, Arlington, Texas, 76013. Former WFFA-TV News Anchor, Gloria Campos, and Arlington Mayor, Jeff Williams, will be in attendance for the momentous occasion.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the gala and our new building,” Executive Director, Fran Martin said. “The extra exam rooms allow us to care for more patients, and the new classrooms allow for our Controlling Chronic Illness classes in English and Spanish to be taught on site.
Open Arms Health Clinic offers truly compassionate, high quality care at no cost to all those throughout North Texas who are uninsured or underinsured. In addition to providing excellent medical care that would be otherwise unavailable, the clinic also helps with the challenges of daily living. The healthcare staff teaches healthy lifestyle and good-nutrition classes, the physical therapist gets patients mobile, and the social work interns help patients who are without jobs, homes or sufficient food and medicine.
The busy non-profit is staffed entirely by volunteers and is 100% funded by grants and generous sponsorships and donations. In addition to caring for the ill and helping the challenged, the clinic is the training ground for medical students from local high schools and colleges.
The clinic needs the financial support of the community to keep providing and expanding
critical services to all those in need. To support this worthy organization, to get gala ticket information and/or to find out more about the building dedication, please visit www.openarmsclinic.com or call 817-496-1919.
