Caroline Robertson, Executive Director of Greer Relief, told today’s gathering at the J. Verne Smith Center, “When you come to work you never know what you will get. Some days 20 people will walk through the door. Other days 350 people will come in.”
Robertson and her staff entertained civic and business leaders and volunteers to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Greer Relief and Resources. These same citizens continue to serve an agency dependent on the communities’ financial and material support.
When Scott Hamilton begins to deliver the keynote address Tuesday night at the Taylors Free Medical Clinic (TFMC) fundraiser it’s hoped his message touches hearts, minds and pocketbooks.
The fundraiser, TFMC’s spring gala, is at the TD Convention Center beginning at 6 p.m. A heavyweight speaker like Hamilton, an Olympic gold medalist and TV commentator, is counted on to inspire fundraising and volunteers while also saluting all those who have contributed to the success of the faith-based clinic.
In 1990, former Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton was chosen the “Celebrity Wish Granter of the Year,” by the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Next week, the Tennessee resident with a long record for overcoming obstacles hopes to help the Taylors Free Medical Clinic make some financial wishes come true.
