Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC Fundraising Event Sept. 15, 2016
(Houma, La.) Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC (MBPCC at TGMC) is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their annual gala, Ladies Night Out presented by Regions Bank, on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center. Tickets are on sale now!
“We are thrilled to have Mrs. Tiffany Adams as our event chair this year while also celebrating 10 amazing years of tremendous community support of our patients and Cancer Center via an unforgettable, fabulous evening,” said Melanie Guilbeaux, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC director. “Over the past 10 years we have raised over $550,000.00 for the patients receiving treatment right here at home. We are proud to be able to offer world class services to our community so that each patient can continue to live life to its fullest.”
In celebration of 10 years, the Cancer Center will feature 26 cancer survivors who have received treatment at MBPCC at TGMC, including 21 courageous women and 5 courageous men.
“We encourage our community to join us as we cheer on these brave men and women walking the runway,” said Guilbeaux. “Our goal is to empower survivors by making them the focus of this event, as we raise funds to support patients in the fight against cancer.”
Proceeds from Ladies Night Out will help take the fight forward by removing barriers to care, such as transportation assistance for those needing help getting to their treatments, and helping to provide free community cancer screenings for those who otherwise could not afford them.
