Rapha Clinic of West GA Announces $7,500 Donation from Southwire

Funds to be used to support the overall operations and Health and Dental Clinic Supplies 

Rapha Clinic, a non-profit, faith-based charity serving uninsured people with their medical and dental needs in the West Georgia community is honored to announce a gracious $7,500 donation provided by Southwire through its community support funds.  These funds will be used to upgrade and replenish health and dental clinic supplies, as well as will support the marketing funds needed for this year’s major fundraiser.   

“The Rapha Clinic of West Georgia (RCWG) serves the uninsured at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty guidelines in West Georgia. A donation of this magnitude goes a long way in making sure that the clinic has the supplies that it needs to serve our neighbors in need,” said Dr. Bill Calhoun, Chairman of the Board for Rapha Clinic.

The donated $7,500 will be split up evenly between operations and marketing. The first half will support the general operations fund and will replenish much needed dental equipment. The second half will go towards the marketing needs for the annual fundraising event called “The Sound of Medicine,” which will take place on September 16, 2021 at Mill Town Music Hall in Bremen, Georgia. 

Due to the continued concerns of the pandemic, the clinic and local ‘rocking doctors’ will host a hybrid event of in-person and virtual viewing, ensuring participant safety and while providing the opportunity to view quality music. The virtual attendees will be encouraged to tune in to either Mill Town Music Hall’s Facebook Live and YouTube Live or Rapha Clinic’s Facebook and YouTube pages. The musical performances will feature talented local healthcare providers and their family members. As a thank you for Southwire’s donation, they will be recognized as one of the top sponsors at the 7th annual Sound of Medicine concert.
