The clinic, which will help relieve overcrowding in the Texas Health Azle emergency department, is slated to provide acute primary care services to patients without appointments. These services will be available to all members of the community regardless of their ability to pay.

Attendees enjoyed a Texas-style dinner and live music by the Freeride Band. Both the live and silent auctions sold out thanks to the generosity of the benefit’s guests.
