Edinburg, TX—8/7/13—Doctors Hospital at Renaissance is pleased to announce its 8th Annual “Fishing for Hope” Tournament, which will be held Saturday, August 24th, 2013 at Louie’s Backyard on South Padre Island, Texas. All proceeds from “Fishing for Hope” will benefit the Hope Family Health Center.
Hope Family Health Center (HFHC) is located in McAllen and is run by local 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, “I am truly amazed by the commitment Doctors Hospital at Renaissance has towards the uninsured and indigent members of our community. Not only have they supported the clinic through direct emergency patient care, but Doctors Hospital at Renaissance’s ‘Fishing for Hope’ Tournament raises funds to help provide community members with healthcare they otherwise would not have access to.”
Stocker continues, “Over the past seven years, Doctors Hospital at Renaissance has raised over $1 million for Hope Family Health Center, which has helped us reach our mission of ensuring each person that enters our doors reaches maximum health and self sufficiency.” Stocker concludes, “I, along with the Hope Family Health Center Board of Directors and Staff, am so grateful for, and proud of, the relationship we have with Doctors Hospital at Renaissance and I look forward to continuing to provide hope for our community.”
