Throughout September, Chesapeake Bank’s Gloucester, Gloucester Point and Mathews branches have been holding raffles, bake sales and other fundraisers to help the Gloucester-Mathews Free Clinic with its ongoing capital campaign. As of last week, the employees had raised approximately $4,000, with the bank matching everything up to $5,000. The bank held a luncheon fund drive Friday at the Gloucester branch, giving up hot dogs, chips and sodas, selling raffle tickets and accepting donations. Among those taking part were, from left, Meredith Fernandez, Gloucester branch manager Johanna Northstein, Renae Williams, Melissa Alexander, Mary Ann Sorey, Free Clinic capital campaign chairman Ann Quinn and executive director Kay Bradley, and Mathews bank branch manager Cathy Mise.
