OHI to Host Valentine’s Fundraiser to Support Health Care Services

Posted on February 4, 2014 By

OHI (Ocean Health Initiatives), an Ocean County federally qualified health center and 501 (c)(3), is hosting Casino Night, its 4th annual Valentines’ Day fundraiser with dinner, dancing, and a silent auction Friday, February 14 from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. at The Mill at Spring Lake Heights, 101 Old Mill Road, Spring Lake Heights, N.J.

Tickets are $125 each. The proceeds will be used to support OHI’s continuing mission of providing high quality primary and preventative care services in its multi-specialty practice, and enhance the medical care services to children, adults, and seniors of Ocean County, regardless of insurance or ability to pay. This includes, but is not limited to, better medical equipment, community outreach, educational materials, vaccinations, health awareness, and more.

Sponsorships, donations, journal ads, items for the gift auction, and premium ticket packages are available and are 100 percent tax deductible, excluding the cost of the dinner.

OHI has been providing comprehensive primary and preventative care services to Ocean County’s uninsured and underinsured populations for the past 10 years. The increasing number of Ocean County families needing access to health care has resulted in OHI’s growth from one community health center in Lakewood to two more health centers in Toms River and Stafford, a center at the Clifton Avenue Grade School in Lakewood, and a Mobile Medical Unit outside the George J. Mitchell Elementary School, 950 N. Green Street, Little Egg Harbor.
