The “There’s No Such Thing As A Free Lunch” Luncheon
April 24, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for our annual “There’s No Such Thing as a Free Lunch” luncheon and help raise funds and awareness to improve the health of medically underserved and uninsured Central Texans. People’s annual luncheon brings together Austin’s community and civic leaders, business professionals, and distinguished others in support of the work of People’s Community Clinic. Did you know that nearly one out of every five people living in the Austin area has no health insurance and little access to medical care? For over 47 years, People’s has helped to fill that gap by delivering high quality, affordable healthcare. The “There’s No Such Thing as a Free Lunch” luncheon generates thousands of dollars to pay for these services.
Interested in sponsoring the luncheon? Contact Joy Authur at JoyA@austinpcc.org.
