Clinics Can Help Announces Inaugural Luncheon This Fall at The Colony Hotel


Palm Beach, Florida –
 This season, Palm Beach is getting its newest event with the Clinics Can Help (CCH) Women’s Caring Circle Luncheon taking place on Thursday, November 17th at The Colony Hotel. The event will support CCH’s C.R.I.B.S. (Cribs R for Infant Baby Safety) Project, helping to provide safe sleeping environments for newborns and infants in our area.

Recognized annually as a four-star charity by Charity Navigator, CCH is Florida’s leading provider of medical equipment and supplies for children and adults. Since its inception, the organization has assisted over 18,000 residents by donating over $12,000,000 worth of medical equipment and in the last few years donated over 1,800 cribs to Palm Beach County families in need. 

Chairing the event will be Emily Pantelides of Pantelides PR, with Dee Hilfiger of serving as International Chair and Barbara Gilbert of Valley National Bank as Honorary Chair. Guests will be treated to a decadent luncheon and shopping experience by celebrity designer Lisa Lerch while raising funds to bring cribs, diapers, wipes, and other necessities to infants and mothers in need. 

Another first will be the keynote address by author and actress, Tina Sloan, who will share her life experiences to inspire others. CCH founder and CEO Owen O’Neill says the luncheon will provide much-needed support for the C.R.I.B.S. Project. “This event is set to make a huge impact in the lives of infants and newborns, helping to ensure that every child in this county has a safe place to sleep. Through Clinics Can Help, hundreds of new Pack’ n Play® portable cribs are donated to families unable to afford safe sleeping environments for their infants every year and we are very much looking forward to growing that number.”

Celebrating ten years of full-time service to Palm Beach County, CCH is committed to increasing access to health equity, by ensuring that every child and adult in Palm Beach County has the medical equipment they need for their protection, recovery and mobility.
