Barnhart, clinic team up for College Football Breakfast

Tony Barnhart, also known as 'Mr. College Football,' will be in Newnan on Saturday for the annual College Kickoff Breakfast to benefit the Coweta Samaritan Clinic.

The event will be held from 7:30-9:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall of Newnan First United Methodist Church.

Barnhart expects to share stories on the eve of the upcoming college football season for the benefit of Coweta Samaritan Clinic. The 2014 College Football Kickoff Breakfast is Saturday, August 23 from 7:30-9:30.

It will be sponsored by Mike Winslett and DTH Expeditors, Inc.

Event chairman Tom Lukens, who is also a clinic board member, added, 'We hope people will join us for a morning of good food, fellowship and Tony's insights into the upcoming college football season.'

Soon to complete its third year of operations, Coweta Samaritan Clinic (CSC) provides free medical care to uninsured residents of Coweta County, ages 19 and older, whose household income is less than 200-percent of the federal poverty level.

The clinic's volunteer physicians, together with other medical and administrative volunteers, diagnose, treat and help patients manage their chronic diseases including hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, respiratory disorders and depression.

CSC expects to add 200 new patients during the next year bringing its patient base to more than 900s.

CSC is funded with private donations from its Board of Directors, other individuals, churches, corporations, foundations, civic groups and events like the Tony Barnhart College Football Kickoff Breakfast.

Tickets for the Barnhart Breakfast are $50 and can be purchased in advance or on the morning of the event.
