Officials at the Dick Parrot Free Dental Care Clinic and the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic will be holding a Scrabble tournament on January 30 to help raise money for the non-profit organization, according to the Press Citizen.
Organizers are hoping to use the tournament to raise over $5,000 in an effort to repay the clinic's mortgage, which will allow the facility to allocate more resources to patient care.
"We hope this will make some money for the free clinic and also be a really fun day for people who love Scrabble," said tournament organizer Pat Weir, quoted by the news source.
Admission is $25 for adults and $15 for children. Three experience levels will be offered and prizes will be handed out to the winner of each division.
The free dental care and medical clinics treated over 2,500 uninsured patients last year during the course of more than 6,000 visits.
Families looking for inexpensive dental coverage may want to look into discount dental plans, which can save up to 60 percent compared to traditional insurance plans.
