The 22nd annual Taste of Chesapeake is a fundraiser to benefit the Chesapeake Care Clinic!
Join us for a night of samples from more than 20 local vendors including restaurants, caterers, breweries & culinary schools along with live music & a silent auction.
Enjoy a fun night and the opportunity to support Chesapeake Care in the many ways we serve the community.
Chesapeake Care is committed to providing medical & dental care to low-income & underserved residents in Chesapeake & South Hampton Roads. There is still a massive gap in healthcare coverage in Virginia and our clinic allows patients to receive the care they need without incurring the burden of heavy financial debt.
Hear about the impact of Chesapeake Care from our patient's perspective:
Shakita is a patient at Chesapeake Care. She was having a terrible toothache, it turned out to be an infected wisdom tooth. The toothache was causing migraines and making her miserable in general.
Shakita lost her previous dental insurance so taking care of this would be a cost she could not afford. That was when she heard about the dental clinic at Chesapeake Care. She was not sure what to expect but was willing to do just about anything at this point to put an end to her suffering.
Our volunteer dental team saw Shakita right away and pulled her tooth. Shakita is now pain-free and a lot less stressed.
“This clinic helped not only myself, but my spouse as well,” Shakita explained. “Getting this awesome service helped me so much and actually changed my life. I would definitely refer friends and family to the Chesapeake Care Clinic. The staff was very kind and professional. And they keep you calm and stress free during the whole procedure. The clinic was very modern and clean.”
Shakita is just one of the many examples of the necessity of our services. Without generous donations from people in our community like you, we would not be able to continue helping others like Shakita.
