HOPE Clinic’s sixteenth annual luncheon will be held on November 28, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at The Junior League of Houston. This year’s focus will be on providing high quality and affordable healthcare for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Theresa and Peter Chang will chair the event.

HOPE Clinic is proud to announce that it well be recognizing Donna Cole, President and CEO of Cole Chemical & Distributing, Inc. as the Community Honoree and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) as the Corporate Honoree. Both have given generous support and guidance to HOPE Clinic’s mission and overall vision throughout the years. Because of them, the clinic has grown dramatically in size and capacity, and in 2017 alone, its staff delivered critical services for over 100,000 patient visits in Houston’s medically underserved community.

“Every year, HOPE Clinic organizes a luncheon to raise support to benefit the thousands of people in need of healthcare services in Houston. Our organization is very blessed to have people like Ms. Cole and HCA supporting our efforts. I cannot say enough about how instrumental they have been in the growth of HOPE! Our luncheon is an opportunity for the Houston community, supporters, and friends to give back to the medically underserved communities in Houston.  With everyone’s help, we know that this year’s luncheon will be the most successful one yet!” says, CEO of HOPE Clinic, Dr. Andrea Caracostis.
