Join North Coast Health In Celebrating 30 Years Of Caring

What if you needed medical care and couldn’t afford it? What if you had to choose between buying your medications and feeding your family? For 30 years, North Coast Health- a faith based charitable clinic- has been the answer to these “what ifs”; providing these services, and many more, to thousands of people in need. What if you could help? Join us at North Coast Health’s annual fundraising gala, Celebration of Caring, on Thursday, September 15, 2016 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Global Center for Health Innovation, Cleveland, Ohio.

The evening will feature a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, dinner, award presentations, raffles, silent and live auctions. Honorary chair for the event is Thomas V. Chema, Chairman and Founder of The Gateway Group. Event co-chairs are Libby Khuri and Heather Oliveira. The evening’s goal is to raise $150,000, to be used to provide medical care to low income men, women and adolescents in Greater Cleveland.  

To add more excitement, the evening will culminate with the drawing of the winning ticket for the 2016 Diamond Necklace Raffle. Take a chance to win an exclusive diamond and 14 karat gold necklace courtesy of Broestl & Wallis Fine Jewelers, Lakewood. The brilliant cut 0.50 carat center diamond rocks gently back and forth within the halo pendant which holds 16 round full cut diamonds weighing 0.15 carats each. Total diamond weight of 0.74 carats strung on an 18 inch white gold box chain. This beautiful piece of jewelry is valued at $3,500. Raffle tickets are one for $25, three for $50 or eight for $100 and can be purchased at or by calling North Coast Health at 216-228-7878 ext. 122. Winner need not be present.

From our humble beginnings through three decades of transformation, North Coast Health continues to change the lives of thousands of people who otherwise would not be able to afford, or have anywhere else to go, for health care. For 30 years, we have witnessed the struggle of our neighbors and have been there to provide the services they need. As a faith-based organization, we hold dear the belief that all lives are valuable and that all should have access to high-quality health care regardless of the ability to pay.
