AccessHealth’s annual fundraising event, Heart of Fort Bend, is pleased to announce that OakBend Medical Center will serve as the presenting sponsor for the October 27, 2016 event held at Safari Texas Ranch.

“Having our outstanding community hospital – OakBend Medical Center – support our efforts on behalf of AccessHealth as presenting sponsor is truly appreciated,” said Richmond Mayor Evalyn W. Moore, event co-chair.  “As a partner in community health, OakBend has been both a visionary and an asset to the efforts of AccessHealth, and we appreciate their support along with all of our wonderful sponsors who have already stepped up to support this year’s event.”

Along with Co-Chairs Holly Kaminga and Patti Parish-Kaminski, the Heart of Fort Bend committee is currently seeking sponsors to support the event to help raise awareness and funds to help meet the otherwise unmet health care needs of the working poor in Fort Bend.  Ninety-nine percent of AccessHealth’s patients have a family income at or below 200% of the federal povetry level, and 56% of AccessHealth’s clients are uninsured.

Sponsors to date include:  Presenting Sponsor OakBend Medical Center; Platinum Sponsor Safari Texas Ranch; Gold Sponsors absolutely! focus media, LLC, Houston Diamond Outlet/Jay and Maggy Horgan, Houston Methodist Sugar Land, Pamela Printing, Phoenix Design Group and Sterling McCall Lexus; and Bronze Sponsors Charles and Carol Edwards, Frost Bank, Memorial Hermann Sugar Land, Nesossi Studios and Patrick Richoux.

Sponsors range from $1,500 to $5,000 and information is available by calling Cindy Reaves at 281-633-3169.  Visit for more information about Heart of Fort Bend.
