The Trinity 500

Trinity 500

The Trinity Free Clinic 500 is the clinic's annual fundraising dinner benefiting our tiniest and most vulnerable patients. The volunteers and staff of the Trinity Free Clinic serve nearly 4,000 patients a year, of which 20% are children.  The majority of our pediatric patients are children of the working poor.  On average, a family of four visiting our clinic earns just $17,421 a year.   We provide our little patients with immunizations, physicals, sick visits, and even specialty care when needed.  We feel it is in the interest of the entire community to keep these precious children healthy. 

We have been able to provide millions of dollars’ worth of medical and dental care at a fraction of the cost because of the loyal dedication of more than 500 active volunteers, medical providers, and administrative personnel.  However, there are other costs such as medicines, labs, medical, and dental supplies that cannot be donated and must be purchased.  

We can only achieve proper funding of the Pediatric Clinic with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community. Without these donations, serving those in need in our community would not be possible. Our goal for the 2015 Trinity 500 is $90,000.

Our next Trinity 500 event will take place on Friday, April 29th 2015, but planning has already started.  Please mark your calendar to join us for this very special night.  The evening includes appetizers, live music, dancing, a silent auction, and a very special keynote speaker.


Dear TFC Friends,

On behalf of the pediatric patients of the Trinity Free Clinic, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to everyone who participated in the clinics’ ninth annual benefit event, the Trinity 500.  Approximately 235 people attended the event at the Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion and we raised most of the funds required to run our Pediatric Clinic which serves the most vulnerable children in Hamilton County.  Thank you for your support! 

Please take a couple minutes to answer our short (three questions) survey. The survey is completely anonymous, and we welcome all input that will help us make next year even better! You can click here to fill out the survey.

I would like to express my gratitude to our sponsors who made the evening possible.  Especially to our Title Sponsor - St Vincent, and our Green Flag sponsors - Wallington Asset Management, and Paul & Judy Estridge.
