Grammy Winner Mandisa to Speak at Interfaith’s Women Empowering Women Luncheon
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Interfaith Community Clinic is excited to announce that Grammy award winning artist, Mandisa, will be the featured speaker for the 7th Annual Women Empowering Women luncheon. Presented by CHI St. Luke’s Health, the luncheon will be held at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center on Friday, January 31, 2020 from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Mandisa grew up singing in church. After completing a bachelor’s degree in music, Mandisa performed session work as a backup singer for a wide variety of artists including Christian author and speaker Beth Moore, Sandi Patty, Shania Twain, Take 6, and Trisha Yearwood. She finished in American Idol’s Top 9 in 2006. In 2007, she was signed by Sparrow Records. Her book, IdolEyes (with Angela Elwell Hunt), was published by Tyndale House in May 2007 and her debut CD, True Beauty, was released two months later. Mandisa is back with a renewed passion for her music and a willingness to be totally transparent and vulnerable about her journey.
Proceeds from Women Empowering Women benefit Interfaith Community Clinic, the only charity clinic serving all of Montgomery County. “The Clinic serves the uninsured of Montgomery County with preventative care visits, routine medication refills, dental cleanings, and vision screenings. We provide a medical home for those who ordinarily would not be eligible to receive baseline medical care, and whose symptoms can worsen into serious illnesses requiring hospitalization if left untreated,” said Dr. William Surber, Medical Director of Interfaith Community Clinic.
“This annual event raises much-needed funds for the Clinic, as demand for services continues to grow each year,” explained Missy Herndon, President & CEO of Interfaith Community Clinic. “We are so excited to hear Mandisa’s inspiring message and share the mission of the Clinic with our guests.”
Interfaith Community Clinic opened its doors in 1996 as the South County Community Clinic, offering routine medical care to those in need. As the community has grown, so have the services offered by the Clinic. Today, patients continue to receive high-quality, basic medical and dental care, as well as counseling and patient services, regular health and lifestyle education classes and community outreach programs.
A volunteer staff of licensed physicians, nurses, medical providers, dentists, dental assistants and dental hygienists; as well as translators and support personnel, work together to provide patient care. Programs are provided free of charge and are funded through the generous financial support of grants, faith-based organizations, businesses, civic groups and individual donors.
