Our Lady of Hope Clinic is a 100 percent pro-life family practice clinic located in Madison, WI that also provides a ton of free health care to patients with no health insurance. Matt has written on it before, and at some point I really ought to do a longer-form piece detailing the clinic's model and mission because they're doing fantastic work.
I'm partial to Our Lady of Hope Clinic for many reasons--perhaps the most important one being that without it, I probably wouldn't have my son.
Because the clinic is a relatively new apostolate (it opened in 2009) and has a unique model, fundraising can be difficult. That's why it's super exciting that a Madison-area supporter is throwing a benefit concert on Monday night to help fund it.
W.C. Clark and his Midwest Blues Review will be doing a benefit for "Our Lady of Hope" free clinic on Odana Road, Monday July 8 at Club Tavern (1915 Branch Street, Middleton, Wisconsin 53562). All donations go to the clinic that helps folks in need without insurance. Thi sis the only Madison date this summer and the last date for the band before W.C. heads to Canada. Joining WC Clark will be Ken Saydak (keyboard), Bill Roberts and Jim Ohlschmidt (guitar), Chris Sandoval (drums), Tony Menzer (bass), and Tom Sobel (saxophone). There will be no cover charge at the door; however a free-will donation will be greatly appreciated.
Now, I'm a HUGE fan of blues music, so I'd want to go anyway. But to get to listen to a hot blues band AND support OLHC, well, it just doesn't get any better than that.
I'll be there, and I'd love to see you there too!
