It was an evening of gratitude and an evening of hope as dozens of guests filled Clinics Can Help for an exciting celebration. The event, hosted by the nonprofit and its Chief Executive Officer, Owen O’Neill, helped to celebrate the achievements that the grassroots nonprofit has achieved since opening in 2005.
“To see how far this organization has grown, and how many people it has helped is incredible,” shared Bryant Sims Esq. who played an integral role in the formation of Clinics Can Help. “What we have here now is an organization that was started in a closet by a hospice nurse with a huge heart and has helped thousands of children and families have the best quality of life as possible. I think we have a model here for something that can be done across the country.”
Since its inception, Clinics Can Help has over 10,600 children and adults in need of medical equipment and supplies in Palm Beach County.
Also key in event planning was Clinics Can Help board member, Pam Swensen, who has been involved since joining the organization’s golf tournament planning committee three years ago.
Swensen led efforts to enhance Clinics Can Help’s brick campaign to raise much needed funding as the nonprofit renovates their exterior adding handicapped accessible parking and ramps to assist clients with special needs.
“We are so grateful to everyone here tonight, as well as everyone who has helped us get this far. It is a team effort and without the support of so many, we would not be able to do the work that we do,” said founder Owen O’Neill. “I am eternally grateful to you all for helping us help others.”
