CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman’s Good Samaritan Health Clinic will hold its sixth annual Caring for Cullman Concert on Monday, Oct. 17, at Northbrook Baptist Church. Returning to help the clinic with its biggest fundraising event are gospel musicians Triumphant Quartet and comedian Mickey Bell.   

Joining Good Samaritan every year, Triumphant Quartet is one of southern gospel’s favorite groups, with numerous Singing News Fan Awards, and Cullman native Eric Bennett has won Favorite Bass Singer honors. Christian comedian and author Mickey Bell returns for his second year. Bell’s wit and ability to speak to crowds of all ages have made him popular across  the country.  

Serving the community 

Good Samaritan Health Clinic is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, relying on the support of the Cullman community to provide services at no cost to patients.  

“We could not provide these services without the monetary support of businesses, individuals, churches, civic organizations and grants, as well as the many medical and non-medical volunteers who choose to serve our community through Good Samaritan Clinic,” said Director Jolanda Hutson. 

The Caring for Cullman Concert has become the clinic’s signature fundraiser to assist in meeting the medical needs of Cullman County’s uninsured.  

Hutson shared, “Due to COVID, we have not been able to host our event for the past two years, so we couldn’t be more excited to bring this event back once again to our community on Oct. 17. In 2019, over 800 people attended the event, raising funds to provide care for 390 patient visits. We are incredibly grateful to all of our event sponsors, many of which contributed to the clinic the past two years even in the absence of our concert.”  

What does Good Samaritan do? 

Good Samaritan Health Clinic provides primary health and wellness care to uninsured adults in Cullman County. Once patients qualify, they have access to all the clinic’s services including medications, referrals, dental extractions, hearing evaluations, mental health counseling and social services. 

Hutson explained, “The clinic provides the uninsured an alternative to the local hospital’s emergency room, thus keeping overall health care costs down while enabling the ER to provide more efficient care for true emergencies. Our patients are so thankful for the health care services they receive through Good Samaritan Clinic. We routinely hear testimonials from our patients that without Good Samaritan, they would have no place to turn for their ongoing health care needs. 

“I encourage anyone who would enjoy an evening of fun and great music to join us. You won’t be disappointed. Maybe you know someone who needs some encouragement, treat them by inviting them to come with you. During the event, you will not only be inspired by some amazingly talented entertainers but also learn more about the impact the clinic is having in our community.”
