Inaugural Event to celebrate New Orleans Cuisine and Family Fun
NEW ORLEANS, LA (October 17, 2017) – Jefferson Community Health Care Centers announces the inaugural Fall Foodies and Festivities fundraising event presented by Louisiana Healthcare Connections to take place Friday, November 3, 2017 at the Bucktown Harbor Marina (325 Metairie-Hammond Highway, Metairie, LA 70005) from 5 PM – 8 PM.
“We’re so excited to bring this fun family event to the community in order to raise funds for Jefferson Community Health Care Centers (JCHCC) to build a new clinic in a hard to reach area to expand the needed services to those who would not traditionally receive quality and affordable healthcare,” says JCHCC CEO Dr. Shondra Williams.
Fall Foodies and Festivities will feature food by local area restaurants including Plum Street Snoballs, Grill it Up Food Truck and The New Orleans Connection, First Class Catering and musical entertainment by The Top Cats. The family-friendly event will also offer a dedicated kids’ area with a bounce house, face painting and more.
JCHCC will offer free health screenings throughout the event and will also be displaying its new dental mobile unit which will begin visiting schools and other community events this fall to assist in diagnosing and treating clients who may not otherwise be able to get to a dental office.
The mission of JCHCC is to elevate the health status of low-income residents by attending to patients regardless of their ability to pay and to improve the delivery of acute, primary and preventive services for low-income residents. The funds from the Fall Fundraiser will be used to support JCHCC’s new Kenner expansion project seeking to serve an additional 3,000 residents.
Event tickets are free for children twelve and under. Regular event tickets are $25, which includes 5 tickets for dining at participating food and beverage vendor stations. Additional food and beverage tickets may be purchased on site. Tickets may be purchased through Eventbrite or by visiting http://jchcc.org/fundraiser.html.
