Free Clinic: All smiles, good cheer

River Falls-based Free Clinic held its annual fundraiser Nov. 9.

Dressed as a toy soldier, Richard Young of Hudson mingled with guests during the Marketplace portion of the Free Clinic’s big fundraiser Saturday night, Nov. 9, at Meyer Middle School in River Falls.

Young had a few tricks to show and talked to children about Santa Claus and his reindeer. Even adults, such as retired local physician Jim Beix and his wife Dorothy, found Young entertaining.

The second annual fundraiser for the Free Clinic, serving needy patients in Pierce and St. Croix counties, raised $37,500. For more photos, see the Nov. 27 print edition of the River Falls Journal.
