2014 Paradise Gala Success!


Invite Cover 1


A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the 2014 Paradise Gala such a success! We raised nearly $550,000, which will make a big difference in the lives of the medically indigent of Martin County. VIM Clinic is able to leverage each dollar into more than $10 worth of services, which means the Gala was worth well over $5 million in health care services to the community. This is important because our poorest residents – those who earn under $11,490 a year – do not qualify for subsidies under the Affordable Care Act and cannot afford health insurance. VIM Clinic remains a critical safety net for the most vulnerable members of our community. Thanks to you, we will continue to meet the medical needs of the least fortunate, while preserving dignity and hope for a better future.
