    Puget Sound Christian Clinic

    Vision Gala

    Saturday, September 30th, 2017

    6:00 PM

    Community Life Center in Lynnwood

    Tickets $75

    At this semi-formal event you will enjoy fellowship, food, music, and the opportunity to bid on some fabulous auction items. We will honor our long-time partners and also welcome new and potential supporters of PSCC as we feature stories and testimonies of the lives being changed by our clinics.

    The gala is the first of its kind for PSCC, and as our only large-scale fundraising event this year, this evening must yield the support needed to expand our services to the growing number of people in our community without access to healthcare.

    Why should you sponsor?

    We are seeking businesses and individuals to underwrite the cost of the gala by becoming event sponsors, in exchange for recognition at the event. Our goal is to acquire $40,000 prior to the event so that all of the money raised that night can go directly to the mission of serving patients in our community.

    Patient’s lives will be changed forever by the funds raised at this special event. Please consider sponsoring us as generously as you are able – and we’ll show our gratitude in tangible ways by recognizing you as a sponsor throughout our event. In addition, all sponsors will be invited to join us for a private pre-event toast and tour of our Lynnwood clinic. We hope you can join us for this inspirational evening. See all sponsorship levels below (if none of these levels interest you or you would like to propose changes, we are open to discussion):

    Puget Sound Christian Clinic (PSCC) is a free clinic providing health care to underserved individuals and families in King and Snohomish Counties.
    PSCC’s mission is to show Christ’s love to underserved individuals and families by offering access to quality and compassionate healthcare. Our services include integrated and comprehensive medical, dental and mental health counseling.

    Puget Sound Christian Clinic began in North Seattle in 2003 through the shared vision of a small group of health care providers. After providing medical care overseas, these providers realized there was an urgent need for healthcare in their local community, where over 20% of the population did not have access to medical and dental care. In sharing their vision and expressing the desire to open a clinic that would provide quality and compassionate healthcare, it was quickly realized that many wanted to participate in making the clinic become a reality. The clinic was granted its nonprofit 501c3 status and we opened up our first location to patients in October 2003.

    The clinic offered medical, dental and mental health services out of its small location in North Seattle, growing each year, until it reached capacity in its seventh year of operations.

    In 2010, PSCC purchased a mobile medical clinic (MMC), allowing us to expand our reach in medical care by taking it directly to communities with the highest need. Today our MMC provides free medical care in three communities in King and Snohomish Counties – Green Lake, Snohomish, and Lynnwood.

    In 2013, our Mental Health Counseling program was able to start a pilot program to grow our model and services. From 2013 – 2016 our program expanded to serving three times the number of patients. As Washington State is currently 50th in the nation for providing adult mental health services, PSCC views this as a vital healthcare service to continue.

    A few years ago PSCC was presented with the opportunity to build a new and expanded dental clinic in Lynnwood, WA. With support from the community and generous donors, our new fully equipped, state-of-the-art, dental clinic opened up to patients in September of 2016. With our new space, we will be able to provide several thousands of patients with care instead of only a couple hundred.
