CROWN POINT | St. Clare Health Clinic sponsors a “Fat Tuesday” bake sale from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Franciscan St. Anthony Health Crown Point cafeteria, 1201 S. Main St.
A variety of items will be available for purchase at the bake sale. There also will be a prize raffle.
Proceeds will be used to buy diabetic test strips and otherwise assist with diabetic programs offered to clinic clients.
St. Clare, since 1996, has provided free primary health care and other assistance to underprivileged Northwest Indiana residents.
“Without the generosity of the individuals that support the bake sale, St. Clare would not be able to provide diabetic meters and test strips to patients," said Julie Mallers, clinic nurse practitioner-manager. "It is truly amazing how each year the bakers create more elaborate pastries and we always have a great response from the staff of St. Anthony’s participating in the raffles. It is truly a fun event for an important cause."
Bakers are needed. Goods can be delivered from 2 to 4 p.m. Monday to the Doctors Dining Room in the hospital cafeteria. For more information, call (219) 663-2160, ext. 2.
