On Sunday, October 23, Treasure Coast Community Health hosts the Tenth annual “TCCH Great Duck Derby” fundraiser. Join in Noon-4 pm at Captain Hirams Resort, 1580 US-1 in Sebastian, FL.
The crowd will watch 5,000 brightly colored ducks float ashore. As the race unfolds, the audience cheers for their champion to win. First place wins a $1,000 cash prize. Johnny and the Blaze will set the scene with festive music and those in attendance can enjoy a specialty drink, 50/50 raffle and face painting.
This TCCH fundraiser turns as little five dollars into eye exams, flu shots, therapy sessions, mammograms, cancer screenings, dental visits, pediatric checkups, wellness appointments and more. One hundred percent of proceeds from duck adoptions and sponsors fund a worthy cause — changing lives and helping 65% of TCCH patients living at or below the federal poverty level.
TCCH offers a unique patient experience with a commitment to accessible and affordable healthcare. TCCH patients receive access to medical, dental and vision services, diabetes support and behavioral and mental health counseling, in addition to on-site pharmacies, labs, x-rays and EKGs within eight healthcare centers. Health navigators are available for assistance in finding the best insurance plan to fit various lifestyles. This convenient design allows the entire family to receive comprehensive care from highly skilled providers who choose an inclusive healthcare environment for all socioeconomic levels.
