Good Shepherd Clinic offers free care to uninsured southern Oklahomans

The Good Shepherd Community Clinic offers free care to uninsured Oklahomans. The clinic will host a first-ever fundraising event, the 2012 Winter Gala Art Show and Sale, to be held Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

The clinic is open Mondays through Thursdays and offers extended evening hours on Tuesdays and Thursday. It was started in 1995 by Dr. Tom McCulloh. The doctors who provide care at the clinic volunteer their time.

“Over the history of this, probably every doctor in our area has at least donated some of their time,” Spohn said.

The clinic operates from public donations and grants. Unlike the handful of health centers that are federally funded, Ardmore isn't considered medically underserved so it doesn't qualify for federal funding.

That's why the clinic's staff and boosters are planning a first-ever fundraising event to benefit the clinic.

The 2012 Winter Gala Art Show and Sale will be Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at the Ardmore Convention Center.

The event includes live and silent auctions and a juried art show featuring works from 21 local and national artists. On Nov. 30, a dinner gala will feature the cowboy comedy of Baxter Black.

The event's featured artist is Mikel Donahue who has provided a painting, “Dr. On Call,” to be auctioned. The evening also will be an opportunity for attendees to meet and greet the artists.

Dec. 1 events include Chickasaw Nation Storyteller Lori Robbins from 10 to 11 a.m., children's crafts from 11 a.m. to noon and a Holiday Food Fare from noon to 1 p.m. with offerings from local eateries. Also on Dec. 1, three art seminars will be offered: Guest Juror Anne Morand, who is art curator at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, will speak from 9 to 10 a.m., Donna Howell-Sickles will speak from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and Donahue will speak from 1 to 1:30 p.m.
