Lincoln Derr was proud to Stand Up for Care Ring as a Corporate Champion and Table Host for the 2018 Care Ring Community Health fundraising luncheon. On October 11th, at The Westin Charlotte, we were joined by other Charlotte Corporate Champions pledging their support for Care Ring’s vision to empower individuals with limited resources to establish and maintain good health. The organization annually serves more than 7,000 people in Mecklenburg County and is a leader in collaborative efforts to improve community health.
This year Care Ring honored Arrington Mixon, recently retired Senior Program Officer with the Leon Levine Foundation and current Board Chair of the Women’s Impact Fund, with the 2018 Maribelle Connerat Award. This annual award is bestowed upon champions for healthcare advancement and community leadership. Ms. Mixon spoke of the strength of Care Ring as an organization through excellent leadership, management, and sustainability. All core competencies essential to maintaining and growing preventative and ongoing health care services to the uninsured and the underinsured in the Charlotte Metro area.
