Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates LOVE Gumbo!

The local musical group by that name, that is.  On November 10th, a standing room only crowd packed the Sunnyside Up Café in Corvallis to enjoy an evening of music by Gumbo, playing in support of MVHCA and its mission of Single Payer health care.  Organized by a group named Second Saturdays, and sponsored by Veterans for Peace - Linus Pauling Chapter 132, and Corvallis Alternatives to War, the event raised $500 to support the work of MVHCA.  We also sold a few more of the red “Health Care is a Human Right” tee-shirts and signed up several more potential Advocates.

Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates expresses its heartfelt gratitude to musicians Sid Beam, Joe Casprowiak and Barbara Barry-Doyle; Second Saturdays organizers Gretchen Newlin, Laurie Childers, Leah Bolger and Ruth Roberts;  and the owners of Sunnyside Up Cafe for the great evening.  We’re honored to have been selected as the concert beneficiary, and the money raised will be put to good use to increase public awareness about the need for affordable, publicly-funded health care available to all.
