Wheeling Health Right to Hold Annual Auction

The 27th annual Wheeling Health Right Chefs’ Auction is upcoming on Friday, May 1, 2020.

The event will take place at WesBanco Arena and will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction. At 7 p.m., dinner will be served and, at 8 p.m., the live auction will commence.

The event features a variety of great food from the very best of the Wheeling area’s food and restaurant scene as well as an auction with many exciting prizes. In addition, the popular Top 40 cover band Hit Play will be providing live entertainment. The proceeds of the event will help benefit Wheeling Health Right. The auction is the organization’s major fundraiser each year.

The theme of this year’s Chef’s Auction is “Once Upon a Time.” Event sponsorship is highly welcomed, and if you are interested in being a sponsor, please contact Wheeling Health Right at (304) 233-1135.

Tickets can be purchased by going to https://wheelinghealthright.home.qtego.net/ or by contacting Kelly Clutter. Tickets are $175 per couple and $90 apiece. Don’t miss the fun! This is a unique Ohio Valley event that continues to grow and helps one of the area’s most important charitable organizations!

Wheeling Health Right, by the way, is a nonprofit organization that provides health care to the uninsured and underinsured populations in the Wheeling and Ohio Valley area. The clinic opened in 1985 and has been recognized as one of the best free clinics in the United States. The staff and board members work tirelessly to obtain funding from many different sources, including government grants and donors.

The clinic has expanded over the years to include a pharmacy and dental clinic, and also provides an opportunity for resident physicians and dental students to gain valuable experience. The physicians and students work in a hands-on setting, while providing much needed care for those who otherwise may not have access

With ongoing changes in the political and government climate, it remains a challenge to generate money to fund all the Health Right does, and the clinic relies upon the generous donations of other organizations and individuals to continue to provide aide. In addition to the Chefs’ Auction -- a wonderful event -- there are many other ways to contribute. Please consider checking out their website for more information about the organization, the Chefs’ Auction, and other ways to get involved: (http://www.wheelinghealthright.com/)

Bordas & Bordas has been proud to be a supporter of Wheeling Health Right, and many of our attorneys and staff members have been involved in the organization for many years, including as board and executive committee members.

We look forward to seeing you at another successful Chefs’ Auction this year!
