THE 6th BIENNIAL GOSPEL & GUMBO
The sixth biennial Gospel & Gumbo fundraising event to benefit the Michael E. Green Prescription Fund for St. Joseph Medical Clinic will be held on Sunday, Oct. 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Barkley House in downtown Pensacola.
The event raises money to help cover the prescription drugs and laboratory costs for Our Lady of Angels St. Joseph Medical Clinic.
The community is invited to help raise funds for the clinic’s much needed medical assistance by attending this year’s Gospel & Gumbo event.
Participants in this year’s Gospel & Gumbo will be able to sample gumbos donated by The Wine Bar, Five Sisters Blues Café, Nancy’s Haute Affairs, The Fish House, Portabello Market and the Pensacola Country Club. Complimentary wine and beer will also be served, provided by The Lewis Bear Company, City Grocery, The Wine Bar, Apple Market, Aragon Wine Market and Wine World.
The St. Joseph’s Choir and The Panhandle Allstars will provide the entertainment with their famous Gospel music and their bluesy, country rock hits.
The event will also include a silent auction featuring everything from fine jewelry and artwork, to a three-day Pensacola Beach vacation package at Emerald Isle, to a dinner party for eight prepared at your home by a local chef, to autographed Bubba Watson collectables.
The cost of the event is $100 per person, payable to Our Lady of Angels. $1,000 sponsorships are also encouraged and offer an opportunity to invite 10 friends or employees for a reserved table.
Longtime supporter Millie Green of Pensacola started the Michael E. Green Prescription Fund to honor her late husband, who died in 2003. Green has been instrumental in helping to organize and champion the Gospel & Gumbo biennial charity fundraiser.
“Mike loved St. Joseph and would be thrilled knowing that its patients are leaving the clinic with the medicines that they need,” she said. “I knew when we started this it was going to benefit a lot of people. But I had no idea how much joy it would bring me.”
In its 10-year existence, more than $250,000 has been raised for non-narcotic prescription drugs and laboratory costs.
“Our primary expense is for prescription drugs, and from anybody’s standard, this fund has been tremendously helpful,” adds Dr. David Conkle, a retired heart surgeon and the Medical Director for St. Joseph Clinic.
