Cancer Fundraising in Howell County gets a remodel
A local cancer fundraising committee has decided to try a different approach
this year to raise funds. Frustrated with the lack of participation and
sponsorship from fundraising efforts in recent years, the group approached
the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation about working with them directly
to ensure that proceeds would benefit local cancer patients.
A Gatsby 20’s themed gala event will be held Saturday, October 20
from 6 to 9 p.m. at the West Plains Civic Center Expo Hall. The event
will feature dinner, guest speakers, and entertainment. All proceeds from
the event will go to the OMC Cancer Treatment Center Patient Assistance
Fund. Twenties costume dress is optional, and prizes will be awarded for
Table sponsorships will be available in several levels, as well as single
seat event ticket purchases for $25. A portion of the table sponsorship
donations will be considered tax deductible.
Committee members include: Danielle Cozort, Kathy Delgado, Richard Delgado,
Wanda Frazier, Eric Gibson (Committee Chair,) Susie Kenslow, Jason Rieck,
Andrea Russell, Carol Silvey, and Amy Jo Wright.
For more information about the gala, to become a sponsor, or to purchase
single tickets, contact the OMC Foundation at 417-853-5200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
