Baby Boomer Advocate and Media Entrepreneur Beverly Mahone Wins Volunteer of the Year Award
Beverly Mahone was the recipient of the Halo Award, which was given to community members who have donated their time, talent or money to the non-profit organization known as CAARE, Inc.
The Halo Award was presented to more than two dozen North Carolina residents who have donated their time, talents or money to the non-profit medical clinic.
In November, Beverly raised $1250 on behalf of CAARE, Inc., by hosting a Throwback to the 60s Fundraising Party. Modern Woodmen of America matched her fundraising efforts, bringing the total raised to $2500. She says she was inspired to do something to help the clinic because of their mission and purpose. “When I heard about CAARE’s Homeless Military Dormitory Project, I felt compelled to try to do something to help. Initially, I was going to have a social media networking party but after learning about Dr. Sharon Elliott-Bynum’
Beverly adds she loves the fact that the clinic offers medical care to people without health insurance. “The clinic does not discriminate,”
CAARE, Inc. has been operating as a medical clinic since 1996.
