Raleigh's Alliance Medical Ministry has been providing health care to working adults without health insurance for a decade. To celebrate this milestone, the nonprofit is hosting a farm-to-table dinner at 6:30 p.m. May 4.
The evening will include a dinner prepared by chef Chad McIntyre of Market Restaurant featuring ingredients from local farms and the ministry's community garden; a cocktail hour in the garden featuring local beer and wine, plus a signature cocktail designed by the Foundation Bar folks using Asheville-based Troy and Sons Moonshine; a silent and live auction, clinic tours and live music.
Tickets to the event cost $110 each. To purchase a ticket, go to goo.gl/gj6fn.
The ministry's health clinic provides medical care "to more than 8,000 low-income adults, with 98% having an annual household income of less than 200% of the federal poverty guidelines," according to its website. The patients receive acute and chronic medical care, pharmacy services, health education, disease management and pastoral counseling. Info: alliancemedicalministry.orgalliancemedicalministry.org.
