Atlanta Summer Classic Hosts the Annual Hope Clinic Fundraising Dinner

The Atlanta Summer Classic is a proud supporter of the Hope Clinic and will again be hosting the Annual Outback Steakhouse Dinner and silent auction to benefit the Hope Clinic this Friday night, June 12 in the VIP tent adjacent to the Olympic Arena.

The Hope Clinic provides affordable alternatives to the hospital emergency room for the primary care/internal medicine medical needs of the uninsured in Gwinnett County, Georgia. The Hope Clinic was founded March 29, 2002 by Dr. William Martin. After 30 years of practicing internal medicine in Gwinnett County, Dr. William Martin was seeing a trend he couldn’t ignore – an ever-growing number of needy patients falling through the cracks of the medical system.

He frequently saw patients get denied access to medical care because of their inability to pay or because their diagnoses left them uninsurable. Not only did this often result in personal, medical and economic tragedy for the patient and his or her family, it created an additional burden on existing ER facilities and ultimately, the entire community. Dr. Martin answered the call not only with a clinic that would provide healthcare for the community, but with an innovative and compassionate solution that benefits those who need it most.

The Hope Clinic’s mission is to provide the very highest quality of medical care to those with limited or no access to healthcare and to treat each patient with the utmost respect and kindness without regard to language, national origin, or ability to pay.

A total of 3,159 patients were served in 2014. Total visits provided by the Hope Clinic in 2014 were 7,538. 56% of all patients are female with 46% of Hope’s patients being Female Head of Household. 17.3% of the Hope Clinic’s female patients are totally dependent on others for food, shelter and clothing and considered indigent. Services include Chronic Care Management for those suffering multiple diagnosis, mental health care, well women care and acute care. The Hope Clinic’s goal is to provide a medical home to those who need it the most.

The Outback Steakhouse Charity dinner raises approximately $30,000 each year towards the Hope Clinic’s mission to provide services to the uninsured and indigent of Metro Atlanta through sponsorships and ticket sales. Outback Steakhouse will provide a buffet style menu at the VIP tent located at the Olympic Stadium during the Six Bar Class, presented by Regions Private Wealth Management. A silent auction is held during the event to raise money for the Hope Clinic. A cash bar is available as well. Tickets are $25 each or $200 for a table of 8.

Please join the Classic Company in giving back to a most deserving, local charity. Tickets are available in the show office.
