Malta House of Care to Celebrate the “Wonder Women of ‘19”

HARTFORD, Apr. 12 – They range in age from 17 to 96; their job titles include college president, Whole Foods dishwasher, and financial executive. One holds the distinction of being the first female Mayor of a U.S. capital.

They are Malta House of Care’s “Wonder Women of ’19” – six outstanding community servants who will be celebrated at an awards ceremony and fundraiser on Thursday, April 25, 6-8:30pm, at the Hartford Marriott Downtown Hotel.

Tickets to the event are $100; all proceeds will support the Malta House of Care Mobile Medical Clinic, which provides free primary care to uninsured adults on a van that goes to four Hartford-area neighborhoods each week.

The honorees are:

 

This year’s “Wonder Women” event is the ninth annual celebration in support of Malta House of Care, which was founded in 2006 and has since provided 51,969 free patient visits to uninsured adults.

An independent non-profit, Malta receives no local, state, or federal funding. Its care is provided by a small paid staff and 50+ medical volunteers, who donate 1,000 hours or $2 million of in-kind care each year.

To cover its clinical expenses, Malta relies on partnerships with non-profit institutions – particularly the Archdiocese of Hartford and St. Francis and Hartford Hospitals – along with grants from foundations, corporations, and family funds and thousands of individual donors.
