W.H.A.T offers a range of primary medical care, mental health, and prevention services.

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) Coastal Horizons Center, Inc. announced it will host a fundraiser for Wilmington Health Access for Teens (WHAT) of Coastal Horizons, Power of the Purse, this Wednesday, March 23rd at 5:30 p.m. at the Country Club of Landfall.

WHAT offers a range of primary medical care, mental health, and prevention services.  It is the only integrated school-based health care provider in Wilmington and serves young people ages 6 – 24.

Coastal Horizons’ President and CEO, Margaret Weller-Stargell, remarked, “school-based health care is widely considered one of the most cost-effective strategies for delivering integrated health care to adolescents. Services are convenient – located on school campus – affordable and confidential, minimizing many of the barriers to health care access for students, such as scheduling, transportation and financial barriers. It reduces lost classroom time for students and lost work time for parents.”

WHAT Programs served over 2,450 unduplicated patients during Fiscal Year 20-21, resulting in the delivery of over 15,000 patient visits.

Power of the Purse Tickets are $35 each or you can make it a “girl’s night out” at a cost of $120 for a group of four.  Raffle tickets are $25 each.

Event and raffle tickets are available at www.coastalhorizons.org/powerofthepurse prior to the event and at the door the day of the event.  Online bidding will go live at 9 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, March 22nd at https://POP22.givesmart.com.
