The SSM Health Samaritan Clinic provides health care to around 500 underinsured patients annually. The clinic works to provide a full spectrum of care, helping individuals to navigate insurance options, finding a primary care provider and working with local community resources if other needs arise. This year celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Samaritan Clinic.
“The Samaritan Clinic is such a noteworthy cause because it helps provide critical health care services to the poor and vulnerable without duplicating other services available in our community,” according to Shawn Fisher, Agnesian HealthCare Foundation executive director. “We’re able to offer acute care services and better continuity of care for those patients with chronic illnesses.”
Tickets are now available for $50 each, four for $150 or nine for $300. Due to updated Wisconsin raffle regulations, tickets must be purchased in person by cash or check.

“The success of the annual cash raffle has a direct impact on local patients right here in our community,” Fisher says. “Proceeds stay local and support our family, neighbors, friends, and colleagues. The money we raise through the cash raffle is vital as the need for these services continues to grow.”
Dr. Brenda Grass, an SSM Health Greater Fond du Lac Region internal medicine/pediatrics physician, and Steve Walber, Fox Valley Savings Bank president, are serving as the 2022 cochairpersons.
