(Houma, La.) Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center (MBPTGMCCC) announces their annual cancer gala, Ladies Night Out, to be held on Thursday, September 28, 2017, at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center. The event raises valuable funds and awareness to support cancer patients in our community. Tickets are on sale now!
“We are thrilled to once again celebrate the tremendous community support of our patients and the Cancer Center with an unforgettable evening,” said Melanie Guilbeaux, MBPTGMC, Cancer Center Director. “Over the past 11 years, we have raised over $650,000.00 for our 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.”
This year’s event will feature 20 cancer survivors who have received treatment at MBPTGMC CC including fourteen courageous women and six 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.
