CULLMAN, Ala. – The staff of Cullman Savings Bank on Thursday presented Good Samaritan Health Clinic (GSC) a check for $5,000 ahead of this year’s fifth annual Caring for Cullman Concert. 

In presenting the gift, bank Vice President Clara Kent told The Tribune, “The Good Samaritan Clinic performs a much needed service to our community.  Cullman Savings Bank Foundation, the bank, its directors and employees are proud to support such a worthy organization. This will be our second year as a Platinum Sponsor for the Caring for Cullman Concert.  I would encourage anyone who likes gospel music or music in general to attend the concert.  They will have a great time and walk away with such an uplifted spirit of community and service.”

GSC Executive Director Jolanda Hutson said, “We are grateful for Cullman Savings Bank’s continued support of the clinic’s efforts by being a Platinum level sponsor of our event again this year. It’s wonderful to have partners that are so community minded and want to give back to their community. Each year, we have over 500 in attendance and anticipate this year being the best yet.  It promises to be a fun-filled evening of laughter and inspiration, with all proceeds benefiting the uninsured right here in our community.”

The fifth annual Caring for Cullman Concert

On Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019, Good Samaritan will present the award-winning Triumphant Quartet and Christian Comedian Mickey Bell, at Northbrook Baptist Church, 3691 Alabama Highway 157, Cullman, starting at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. 

In statements provided by GSC, two of the evening’s entertainers shared their thoughts on the event:

Bell said, “As an artist, I get asked all the time to support various projects. While I can’t do them all, Good Samaritan of Cullman will always be at the top of my list to help simply because I believe in their work. They are truly helping people when they need it the most and that it so important. The event is a fun evening that is not presented as a ‘benefit.’ It is a night of fun and great music. It just so happens that you are able to help others while having a good time as well.”

Triumphant Quartet’s award-winning bass singer Eric Bennett said, “Triumphant loves coming to Cullman, Alabama. We jump at the opportunity every year because we know we are gonna have an incredible time with incredible people. It’s always good to get caught up with family and friends. We also really enjoy the fact that we can be a part of such a wonderful fundraiser. Come and see us, worship with us and let’s have a great time.”

Be a sponsor

Good Samaritan is still seeking sponsors for the Caring for Cullman Concert, at the Platinum ($5,000), Gold ($1,000), Silver ($500) or Bronze ($100) levels. Platinum sponsorships must be received by Aug. 13 from any sponsors who wish to have their names included in promotional materials.

“We invite businesses, churches and individuals throughout our area to show their support of our mission and the people we serve by becoming an official event sponsor,” said Hutson. “Your sponsorship will assist us in providing quality health care for individuals lacking access to affordable health care services.  Becoming an event sponsor is also a great way to increase awareness of your organization with each sponsorship level offering different recognition opportunities.”

To become a sponsor, make a donation to GSC or for more information on the concert, call the event line at 256-255-5965 or email jhutson@goodsamaritancullman.com.
