EOS Lounge to Host ‘Cocktails for a Cause’ Fundraiser

Proceeds will support doctors Chris and Maya Powers, who will serve the poor in Tanzania

This Friday, May 18, the EOS Lounge will host the “Cocktails for a Cause” fundraiser to support the James C. Carey Memorial Fund, which strives to help doctors help those most in need in Africa.

Funds raised by the event will go toward the first recipients, Drs. Chris and Maya Powers, and their three-year commitment to serve the poor in Tanzania later this year.

Today, many young doctors are graduating medical school with loans in excess of $100,000. Deferment is an option for those interested in serving; but upon returning from three years overseas, the accrued interest has the potential to increase the total loan by 50 percent. This burden of debt prevents young doctors from being able to follow a call to serve in the missions as early Mission Doctor James Carey did with his family.

The James C. Carey Memorial Fund was established to generate the income to make monthly medical school loan payments for doctors serving long term with the Mission Doctors Association.

The $25 ticket price includes a “mission possible” drink, hors d’oeuvres, a performance by hometown musical sensation Bad Jack, and a special opportunity to learn more about this unique group making differences for more than 50 years.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
