HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A Harrisburg chiropractor is spreading the word about his clinic's participation in a pair of upcoming charitable events. According to Dr. Albert Skocik, Skocik Chiropractic will participate in a Basket Bingo event to support St. Jude's Hospital on October 5th, 2014, while also offering free services as part of Doctors with a Heart Day on October 7th, 2014. "We see these events as opportunities to give back to the community we share with our patients. We also hope to help raise awareness about chiropractic treatment and its potential benefits," said Dr. Skocik.
The Basket Bingo event invites participates to show off their bingo skills while helping to raise money for St. Jude's Hospital, which Dr. Skocik cites as the only pediatric cancer treatment facility in the nation in which patients don't have to pay for services not covered by their insurance. "This institution's heart has always been in the right place, and anyone's child might someday be in a position to need their services. As a community, we absolutely must show our support so St. Jude's Hospital can continue to provide these necessary services," he said.
According to the chiropractor, the needed support will come in form of a $25 advance admission charge to Lingelstown Fire Company ($30 at the door), which gives the participant 26 regular games. The kitchen will provide a full menu starting at 11:00am; the "early bird" bingo game begins at 12:30pm, with regular games commencing at 1:00pm. Prizes to be won include the latest Longaberger baskets, which Dr. Skocik states will be generously filled and wrapped. Additional highlights of the day will include raffles, special games, 50/50, pull tabs, and a Treasure Pyramid.
Dr. Skocik describes Doctors with a Heart as one of the largest doctor-sponsored non-profit charities in the world. He notes that his clinic will support this cause by offering free services between 8:00am and 6:00pm. The services to be provided include spinal exams, X-rays, and any necessary and desired treatment. The chiropractor noted, "This is a perfect opportunity for those who have aches and pains but have never tried chiropractic treatment before."
Both events, Dr. Skocik adds, are a natural fit for Skocik Chiropractic's 25-year mission of service to the community. "Over 15,000 doctors donate their time and services on this day. I'm proud and excited to be part of such a worthy cause," he said. The chiropractor instructs people interested in the Basket Bingo event to reserve their seats by contacting Susan Fearnbaugh at (717) 599-6031 or sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals who wish to take advantage of Doctors with a Heart Day are directed to contact Skocik Chiropractic at (717) 540-8448.
