Mt. Juliet's Charis Health Center is one step closer to winning $10,000 in the Brackets for Good fund-raising tournament and has issued a call for community support.
Charis, which provides primary health care to uninsured residents in the Middle Tennessee area, needs to score in the donation column this week to defeat Cottage Cove Urban Ministries, which has scored over 7,000 points so far in the fund-raising tournament.
"We have a formidable opponent this week, and we need all the support we can get from the community to win this round and stay in the running for the championship and $10,000," Charis Health Center Executive Director Lea Rowe. "Every donation helps, regardless of the amount."
Charis Health Center outscored The Little Pantry That Could on March 17 to win their "Supported 16" bracket. There are now eight local non-profits remaining in the "Engaged 8" round of the tournament.
