Good News Clinics will host its annual fundraising dinner on Saturday, at 6 p.m. at Lanier Technical College’s Ramsey Conference Center.

This year’s Mardi Gras Celebration will honor Doug and Sandy Carter as the “King and Queen of the Carnival,” recognizing their outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of the Gainesville community, according to a press release from Good News Clinics.

The fundraiser will include dinner, a cocktail party, live auction and presentation of the Sam Poole and Anne Warren Thomas Awards.

“We are thrilled to be back in person at our normal time of year to honor the amazing work that Good News Clinics does day in and day out,” said Liz Coates, Executive Director of Good News Clinics in a press release.
