The Friends of the Temple Community Clinic recently held the 20th annual Caring Ball, themed “A Night in Tuscany,” at the Frank W. Mayborn Civic & Convention Center. This event featured a special wine-tasting and dinner catered by Waco’s Bestyett Catering and music provided by the Argyles.

The evening began with a silent and live auction and concluded with dancing until midnight. All proceeds from the event went to supporting the Temple Community Clinic.

The Temple Community Clinic Inc. is a community-based organization providing free health care to the working poor, qualified uninsured and those with overwhelming medical debt in the Bell County area since 1992. Dedicated to addressing more than just the physical needs of the patients by innovative high-quality services including health education and research, the goal of Temple Community Clinic Inc. is to be a focal point of compassion and caring in the City of Temple. The clinic staff consists of highly qualified volunteer physicians, nurses and dentists from Scott & White Memorial Hospital and Clinic and various private practices. Volunteers from community organizations and the business community assist with office responsibilities.
