Taste of Stones River benefits Murfreesboro health clinic

Posted:
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

For many Middle Tennessee families without the safety net of health insurance, the Primary Care and Hope Clinic in Murfreesboro is a place they can go for medical care.

The non-profit health center serves the medically uninsured and underserved, Medicare and TennCare patients in Rutherford County and the surrounding area.

The clinic served 5,200 patients last year alone.

The center will get a big financial boost thanks to a community event planned this weekend.

Taste of Stones River is a culinary festival that features menu items from more than 40 participating area restaurants.

The seventh annual event is Saturday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Avenue Murfreesboro.

It will take place in the parking lot in front of Belk.

The event is free, but sampling tickets will cost fifty cents each and can be purchased the day of the event.

All proceeds will benefit The Primary Care and Hope Clinic.

Last year the event raised approximately $52,000.

"All we have to do is ask. Murfreesboro is a great, giving community. The restaurants and businesses and sponsors say yes because they know we're a needed asset in the community and we do a good thing," said Cindy Rhea with the Primary Care and Hope Clinic.
