Mega Doctor News –
Edinburg, TX — Doctors Hospital at Renaissance is pleased to announce its 10th Annual “Fishing for Hope” Tournament, which will be held Saturday, August 22, 2015 at Louie’s Backyard on South Padre Island, Texas. Now the largest non-profit tournament on the Texas coast, “Fishing for Hope” is a family-friendly and fun event for people of all ages. This year’s tournament will feature a live concert, dinner, the legendary stars auction, and much more! All proceeds from “Fishing for Hope” will once again benefit the Hope Family Health Center.
Hope Family Health Center (HFHC) is located in McAllen and is run by local volunteer physicians and staff, all of which provide their time and services without charge. HFHC provides free health services in an open and accepting atmosphere to all persons living in the Rio Grande Valley who are without access to health care or medical insurance. As our community grows, so do our medical and health care needs—the physicians and staff at Doctors Hospital at Renaissance have acknowledged this and have come together to contribute to this worthy cause.
Rebecca Stocker, Executive Director of the Hope Family Health Center, states, “The commitment Doctors Hospital at Renaissance has to the health of our community is truly humbling. Their service to the uninsured and indigent individuals and families shows their dedication to the health of the entire Rio Grande Valley.”
Stocker continues, “Not only have they supported the clinic through direct emergency patient care, but DHR’s ‘Fishing for Hope’ Tournament raises funds to help provide community members with healthcare they otherwise would not have access to. Doctors Hospital at Renaissance has raised over $1.4 million over the past 10 years for Hope Family Health Center, which has continued to help with the mission of ensuring each person that enters our doors reaches maximum health and self-sufficiency.”
Doctors Hospital at Renaissance would like to thank its generous supporters and sponsors of the 10th Annual “Fishing for Hope” Tournament. There are many sponsorship and participation options still available. For more information, contact the DHR Community Events Department at (956) 362-3140. MDN
