Friday, June 17th was the kick-off to the Prostate Cancer Organization of the Ozarks fundraiser for the CoxHealth Foundation Prostate Cancer fund. A group organized to bring greater awareness to men’s health, the group’s goal is to see CoxHealth as the premier provider for prostate cancer care. The dollars raised will be used to support a multi-disciplinary clinic, a prostate cancer patient navigator, and to help create great education and awareness as well as offer financial support for patients who cannot afford their care.
The event was held in the Wonders of Wildlife Museum, which has yet to open. 226 guests enjoyed a five course meal, special gifts throughout the night and dancing to Memphis based band, Almost Famous. Over $100,000 was raised for the cause. To learn more or to donate, call 269-7150. See additional photos on the CoxHealth Foundation Facebook page.
