B-N Jaycees Raises $5,025 for CHCC


B-N Jaycees and this year's Bruegala raised $5,025 for the Community Health Care Clinic.  This investment will pay for the Clinic's membership to Dispensary of Hope to access millions of dollars of medications for our patients.
CHCC Board President Todd Anderson, Executive Director Angie McLaughlin, and Operations Manager Mike Romagnoli accepted the Bruegala check on behalf of all the patients who are served at the Clinic.  This year's Bruegala funds will help pay our membership to the Dispensary of Hope.  The Dispensary of Hope is a charitable medication distributor. Through innovative stewardship of the pharmaceutical supply-chain, the Dispensary of Hope collects and distributes millions of dollars of pharmaceuticals annually to charitable clinics and pharmacies to dispense to low income, uninsured patients.  Pharmacies and clinics utilize Dispensary of Hope medication to address community health concerns, as the cornerstone of avoidable hospital readmission programs and to reduce unnecessary emergency room use that often results from lack of access to affordable medication. 

Thank you to everyone who organized, volunteered, and attended this year's Bruegala.  Your investment in human resources and beer tickets made a difference in building a foundation for healthcare access in McLean County!
