"And They're Off..."

We are thrilled to invite you to join us for an unforgettable evening under the banner of “And They’re Off…the Race for Hope, Health, and Healing.” This year’s gala promises to be a spirited celebration of our ongoing commitment to serving the Ohio Valley community.

At the heart of OVHC lies a profound mission: to provide free, high-quality healthcare to the medically uninsured and underinsured individuals of the Ohio Valley, regardless of their ability to pay. Since our inception in 2006, OVHC has touched the lives of over 4,000 individuals, delivering over 25,000 medical visits—all at no cost to the patient. Our dedication to serving those in need with dignity and respect is unwavering.


This year’s gala is not just about revelry; it’s about highlighting the strides we’ve made in fulfilling our mission. We’re racing to expand our team of providers, broaden our patient base, enhance our programs, and upgrade our equipment to offer even more comprehensive services. With each step forward, we’re bringing hope, health, and healing to our community.


As we prepare for an evening of elegance and philanthropy, we invite you to join us in supporting our cause. Your generosity will fuel our mission and enable us to continue making a tangible difference in the lives of those we serve.

We would be grateful if you would consider a sponsorship for this year’s Gala, our largest annual fundraiser. Above is a link to our 2024 Sponsorship Levels along with a Registration Option.

The Gala will be a semi-formal (black tie optional) affair that will include dinner, a brief program recognizing this year’s honorees, a live auction and our popular (and fun) mystery boxes totaling over $10,000 in donated prizes.  If you have any questions, please contact the Ohio Valley Health Center at (740) 283-2856.

Your support for OVHC – our community’s clinic – would be most appreciated!

Respectfully Yours,
