PAST EVENT

Heppy Hour Benefit 2019Join the effort to eliminate Hepatitis C in Philadelphia. In honor of World Hepatitis Day, Philadelphia FIGHT Community Health Centers welcomes you to enjoy light appetizers and refreshing mocktails, courtesy of Safran Turney Hospitality (Bud & Marilyn’s, Barbuzzo, Jamonera, Lolita, Little Nonna’s). All proceeds from the event benefit Philadelphia Fight’s C a Difference Program.

An estimated 53,000 people in Philadelphia are living with Hepatitis C (HCV), many of whom are unaware that they are HCV positive. HCV is curable. In fact, to date, more than 700 HCV positive patients have been cured or started curative treatment at Philadelphia FIGHT Community Health Centers, with hundreds more expected in the coming year.

Your support helps make treatment possible.

  • $25 covers transportation expenses to the clinic for a patient to complete HCV treatment
  • $50 covers a confirmatory HCV test for one patient tested in the community
  • $100 covers lunch served during our HCV support group
  • $250 covers one month of gas for our future HCV/ Dental mobile clinic
