WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- It’ll be a fiesta at the Prince William Area Free Clinic.
The clinic will celebrate the opening of its unified health center on Church Hill Drive in Woodbridge by holding a special dinner on Aug. 16.
“We wanted to have a community event where our patients and the community can celebrate,” said Prince William Area Free Clinic Director Linda Franklin.
The idea is the brainchild of several volunteers and patients at the clinic, as many were looking for a way to give back the agency that has helped them.
Diners can expect burrito, enchilada, tostada, rice and beans on each plate followed by a desert, said Franklin. Todos and Americana markets will donate all of the meat and other items to make the celebration possible.
A guitarist will also play music while event goers eat their meals.
Tickets for the dinner are $7 for adults, $5 for children under 12 years old. The clinic is located at 13900 Church Hill Drive in Woodbridge.
Last year, the Prince William Area Free clinic saw patients in more than 15,000 medical visits, 240 dental visits, and more 20,000 hours of volunteer time were donated to the clinic by dedicated volunteers.
