Friday, November 4th, 2016, the Samaritan House co-hosted an event with Levine Cancer Institute at Levine’s Museum of the New South. The food was great and drinks were enjoyed by everyone as well as the fantastic museum exhibits. Board President Rod Wilkes engaged the audience by introducing what the mission of Samaritan House is and how valuable every contribution can be to serving our guests. A video of one of our past and most beloved guests was shown to explain that Samaritan House really is a place of healing and opportunity for those individuals and patients in unfortunate circumstances. Ruth and Frita, our founding members, gave a sentimental speech about how their first offices were in a train station and how much Samaritan House has grown for the better. Another moving narrative was made by Brad Goforth “the fat guy” who is always around, who keeps Samaritan House operational by doing enough work for 5 people every single day, along with our 3 other staff members. We thank Dr. Raghavan, an oncologist and the president of Levine Cancer Institute for making this night possible and for teaming up with us to continue to provide a safe haven for homeless cancer patients. We particularly thank Ashley Sumrall and all of our board members for putting this event together. The donations and generosity were more than we could ever expect.
