Football Kickoff to benefit Samaritan Clinic

Tony Barnhart, “Mr. College Football,” will be in Newnan again this year to share his often humorous insights on the upcoming football season for the benefit of Coweta Samaritan Clinic.

The 2013 College Football Kickoff Breakfast is Aug. 24 from 7:30-9:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall of Newnan First United Methodist Church. This year’s event is sponsored by Mike Winslett and his firm, DtH Expeditors, Inc.

Coweta Samaritan Clinic provides free medical care to adult residents of Coweta County who lack health insurance and the financial resources necessary to receive care elsewhere.

Since opening in October 2011, CSC’s volunteer physicians and medical professionals have completed more than 3,700 patient visits. The clinic, located in the old health department facilities on Jackson Street, currently treats 650 people.

Tickets are $50 and will be available the morning of the event. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call Tom Lukens at 678-423-3164 or Lou Graner at 770-683-6981.
