To the editor:

The Dine-to-Donate fundraiser for St. Martin’s Healthcare was a success in raising awareness and funds. The event was held on Wednesday, Sept. 22, from 5-8 p.m. at Wings Etc. in Kendallville. The restaurant donated 10% of pre-tax food sales. Guests could choose to dine in or carry out their meals.

SMHC would like to thank the Noble County Health Task Force for organizing the event and the dining guests who ate a meal supporting the cause. SMHC would additionally like to thank the community partners of the 2021 Dine to Donate.

Venue Partner: Wings Etc., Kendallville; Premium Burger Partners: Gary and Annette Adkins, Yoder & Jessup, Law Office; Basket-O-Wings Partners: Nik and Grace Caswell, Jim and Julia Nixon

The Garrett-based health clinic expanded medical and dental services to Noble County residents in 2016. At present, nearly 25% of the clinic’s patients are from Noble County. The next Noble County fundraising event will be in 2022. Please look to the Noble County Health Task Force for more information.

Noble County Health Task Force was founded to provide local support to Noble County's uninsured or under insured. To (1) Increase awareness of St. Martin’s services. (2) Provide financial support to the Clinic. (3) Recruit medical volunteers to help support the Clinic’s operations. Task Force members include Gary Adkins, Nicolette Benedict, Grace Caswell, Julia Nixon and Joshua Munson.

The proceeds raised from the Dine to Donate support St. Martin’s mission. SMHC serves the uninsured and under insured health care needs of DeKalb and Noble counties. The clinic helps maintain the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual health of the community.
