BREVARD -- Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine is encouraging the public to attend a very special luau celebration.

"Luau in the Himalayas" is a feast of food, beverage and fun, organizers said.

The event will be held at the Himalayan Asian Bistro in Rockledge on Sunday, June 23. All proceeds from the event will go toward Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine's goal of providing free health care to those in need.

"The program provides such a great service and an outlet to help people in such a difficult time," said Paul Ringenberger, executive director of Volunteers in Medicine. "This will also be a great event. This place has terrific food, entrees, appetizers and beer and wine."

Tickets for the event are $60 a piece, or $100 a couple. The event features a buffet of appetizers, soups and entrees, including sushi, seafood, beef, pork, chicken and vegetarian.

At last year's event, Mr. Ringenberger said the organization raised $5,000.

"Last year, we had a sell out (crowd) and everyone had a blast," he said in a press release. "We always provide our guests with a first class event and promise a great evening, but, beyond the festivities, this is a fundraiser for a local charity that provides care local residents - folks without health insurance."

Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine provides free medical, dental and chiropractic care to the uninsured of Brevard County.

The clinic is one of seven in Florida, and a part of the 91 member VIM clinic alliance across the United States.

Organizers said that casual, comfortable dress is encouraged.

The event will also feature door prizes, live music, dancing and more.

Mr. Ringenberger said the event currently has sold more than 125 tickets, and he hopes to sell at least 140 total.

Tickets may be purchased by contacting the Fern Adams, clinic marketing director, at (321) 698-0720, or the clinic at (321) 914-0915.

Credit Cards are accepted, and corporate ticket packages are available by contacting Mr. Ringenberger at the clinic.

"Luau in the Himalayas" doors open at 4:30 p.m., and the dinner begins at 5 p.m.
