Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundations invites the community to join them
at this year’s Cancer Crusade Gatsby Gala. The event, in its second
year, to celebrate cancer survivors will be held on Saturday, Nov. 9,
from 6 – 9 p.m. in the Magnolia Room at the West Plains Civic Center,
110 St. Louis Street.
Entertainment will be provided by a 17-person big band, “Caduceus
– The Doctor’s Band.” Inspirational guest speakers will
include patient testimonials and Dr. Morgan, Board-Certified Oncologist,
OMC Cancer Treatment Center. Dinner will be provided by Colton’s
Steak House & Grill. OMC Foundation invites attendees to join them
in dressing in 1920s attire. Lavender was chosen as the event color since
it represents all types of cancer diagnosis.
Ozarks Cancer Crusade was established to bring awareness to and assist
the approximately 4,240 cancer patients being treated at OMC Cancer Treatment
Center. Many have been helped by the generosity of the community. With
ongoing support, the Cancer Crusade can continue to make a difference
in their lives.
Tickets are currently available for $50 at the Ozarks Medical Center Foundation,
located at #12 Parkway Center, West Plains, MO, or online at

from this event go to the Ozarks Cancer Crusade Fund, which is set up
as an emergency fund for OMC Cancer Treatment Center patients.
The Ozarks Medical Center Foundation, established in 1998 as a not-for-profit
501(c)(3) with a local board of directors, serves as a liaison between
the donor and OMC to assist the hospital in providing excellent healthcare
to the communities it serves. For more information or to make a gift to
