My name is Cass Downing, and I’m a CNA on the Care Access Team at Agrace. As a native of Madison, I’ve been very familiar with Agrace all my life, due to my personal experiences with friends and family.
When I was hired by Agrace in May 2015, I was ecstatic and filled with gratitude to be part of such an amazing organization that touches people’s lives in such a special, personal way. One day I was in our State of Agrace meeting and heard Marcia Whittington of the Agrace Foundation speak about a program we offer called “’Care for All,” which helps patients when they can’t pay for the care they need from Agrace. I know what it’s like not be able to receive care due to either having no insurance or not enough personal funds. I have always been blessed with love, compassion and care from others in times of my life when I could not carry myself, so I have made it a point to keep paying it forward.
Being the entertainer that I am, I’ve decided to put my talent to use by holding my own fundraiser with the help of some amazing friends for our Care for All program. This will be an astounding Drag Show event for ALL to attend–a night not to be missed!
Please join us at Five Night Club, 5 Applegate Court, Madison, on Saturday, April 21. Show time is 8:30 p.m. ($10 Cover charge) Sit back and enjoy some fierce entertainment from as far away as Marquette, Mich., Milwaukee and Marshfield.
I thank each and every one of you for considering supporting us in this event. Every day is a blessing!
