The event was held at the Moorings on February 9 with well over 200 people enjoying a sumptuous culinary tour of New Orleans, spirits, a Dixieland Band and all the fun of a carnival! The event raised more than $130,000 for We Care.

The 501 C-3 “We Care” program was established in 1991 to provide free medical treatments to residents of Indian River County who are otherwise financially unable to afford specialty healthcare.  The program is designed to offer non-emergency care to low income families, prevent medical conditions from becoming acute and, if possible, avoid emergency care and hospitalization. Proceeds from the evening were raised for to the We Care Foundation which also supports the We Care Clinic located in the Gifford Health Center in Vero Beach.
