2nd Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Event to be Held at CCMH
October 16, 2017
CARROLLTON, Mo. – Next Thursday, October 19, Carroll County Memorial Hospital will hold their second annual Treasure Your Chest event, in an effort to promote community awareness of breast cancer, while also incorporating a fun night out for women.
As October is nationally recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness month, a committee of CCMH employees felt the need to create a fun evening event centered around women. Not only will there be tasty hors devours, but ladies will also be able to shop with local vendors, learn about services that CCMH offers, sign up for discounted labs and mammograms, and win special prizes.
New this year, we are featuring a Bra Auction.
“Carrollton Area Career Center Health Occupation Students of America will be assisting CCMH with the silent auction portion of this event by supplying decorated bras to be auctioned off, with all proceeds staying right here in our own community assisting HELP Services,” said Kelly Harvey, HOSA Advisor. “HOSA encourages students, grades 9-12 who are going into the healthcare field in some capacity to become involved in this organization as it encourages problem solving, creativity, and development of personal speaking skills.”
This is also a great opportunity for event attendees to give back to a local cause here in Carrollton.
“The committee has really worked to make this event more all-encompassing by adding diagnostic testing, additional vendor choices, and a more unique overall experience,” said Tim Braun, CCMH Chief Operations Officer.
In addition, Carroll County Memorial Hospital is also offering the discounted mammogram special through October 31. If you would like to set up an appointment for a mammogram, call 660-542-1695. To learn more about the event, follow the Carroll County Memorial Hospital Facebook page.
