SWFL Florida Free Pain Clinic Spring Fling to Heal the Hurt
Fundraiser benefits the only free pain clinic in Florida healing low-income, uninsured pain patients without the use of drugs
The Southwest Florida Free Pain Clinic, the only free pain clinic in Florida for low-income, uninsured residents, will hold Spring Fling to Heal the Hurt, a fundraising event on Thursday, April 4, 6 p.m. at Lexington Country Club, located at 16257 Willowcrest Way in Fort Myers. The event will feature dinner, wine tasting, and a live and silent auction. Reservations are $75 per person and can be made at www.freepainclinic.org.
The Southwest Florida Free Pain Clinic, founded in 2010 by Alan Gruning, D.O., was established to provide treatment options to individuals suffering from acute and chronic pain, without the use of opioids, and with the added unique aspect of prayer and counseling. The clinic takes a holistic approach to healing and utilizes medical and chiropractic care, physical and massage therapy, the use of modalities, essential oils, and lifestyle education to alleviate pain at the source and begin an effective healing process for people who do not have the ability to pay.
Event sponsors include Ameriprise Financial, Brian J. Downey, P.A., The Campbell Group, Capital Care Group PLLC, Cathy Sink Allstate, Kevin & Pam Kollmann - Estate Landscaping & Lawn Management LLC, Herman Woodcrafting, International Center for Health and Wellness, LLC, Lee Health, Mind and Brain Care, Pittman Law Firm, P.L., and Woodsmoke Camping Resort.

The Spring Fling to Heal the Hurt dinner and auction will benefit continued efforts to expand services to an underserved demographic.
"We are excited to see the growth in our free clinic over the last few years and how the community has rallied behind us to raise the support we need," said Alan Gruning, DO, Executive and Medical Director. "Last year we had 180 attendees help us raise about $25K through the event to support our expansion. This year we are looking for an even greater show of support that will enable us to expand to a full time free pan clinic, something that has never been done before in the United States.”
