At Columbia St. Mary's, we are called to shed light on the importance of the early detection of cancer.
Proceeds from our 2014 Gala will do just that – by providing 3D mammography to all women, including the underserved and most vulnerable in our community.
Columbia St. Mary’s has always offered the women of southeastern Wisconsin the gold standard of breast health care.
Now, we will once again advance that standard of care to the highest level.
3D mammography is the cutting-edge screening and diagnostic technology – and the benefits will affect thousands of women each year.
Finds 27 percent more cancers and 40 percent more invasive cancers than conventional 2D mammography. Earlier detection means less treatment and better survival.
Results in fewer false-positives, with as high as a 40 percent reduction in follow-up exams. Fewer false-positives and fewer additional screenings mean less anxiety and radiation, and greater peace of mind for patients.
To help make these efforts a success, a team of volunteers have been hard at work.
CSM Foundation offers its gratitude to this year's co-chairs – George and Yvonne Hoff, Bob and Ellen Venable and Dr. Rob Lyon and Gabrielle Davidson – for their enthusiasm and dedication.
In addition, thanks to our Sponsorship Committee – our co-chairs along with Kevin Behl, Richard Butler, Jon Kaml, Randy Perry and Bob VanHimbergen – for their hard work in helping make our event a success.
This black-tie event will take place on Saturday, October 25, and feature unique auction items to bid on, a four-course dinner prepared by the expert culinary team at Milwaukee Country Club, and live music by Five Card Studs.
Individual tickets are $300 and there are several sponsorship opportunities are available.
This event is nearly sold-out so make your reservations today!
