Special to the Island Connection
A man came to the Wellness House dental clinic for the emergency treatment of severe pain. He was a chef in a local restaurant but had no dental insurance or savings. After several appointments his teeth were finally repaired and painless, for the first time in years.
This golf tournament is being held so that Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach can continue helping the local community.
