Saint Michael's Golf Outing Raises $100,000 for Breast Center

Newark, NJ—Ninety-four golfers took to the green at the Saint Michael’s Medical Center (SMMC) Golf Outing on June 2, 2014. The daylong event, held at Cedar Hill Golf and Country Club in Livingston, NJ, began with an outdoor lunch, followed by 18 holes of golf, and commenced with a cocktail hour, dinner, raffles and a silent auction. More than 120 guests attended the evening festivities.

By the end of the day, the event raised $100,000 to support The Connie Dwyer Breast Center at SMMC.

“The funds raised will help us acquire the resources we need to continue our mission to provide top-quality breast care—from screening and diagnosis to treatment and followup—for all women,” said Connie Dwyer, founder of the Connie Dwyer Breast Center. “We are truly touched by the outpour of support and the generosity demonstrated by the event’s attendees and sponsors.”

A comprehensive, state-of-the-art facility, The Connie Dwyer Breast Center provides expert diagnosis and treatment of breast disease, breast cancer prevention, early detection, and educational outreach programs in northern New Jersey. The Breast Center conducts over 20,000 procedures annually, including mammograms, ultrasound and biopsies. In addition, the Breast Center reaches out to more than 1,500 women annually through a series of free educational sessions and breast cancer screenings at the hospital and in the community, with outreach performed at churches, schools, community centers, and other local organizations.

Phoenix Physicians, LLC, served as the event’s main sponsor. To view photos from the Golf Outing, please visit the SMMC Facebook page at facebook.com/SaintMichaelsMedicalCenter.
