Benefitting Shore Cancer Center
Friday, September 20, 2019
Golden Nugget Hotel Casino, Atlantic City
Since its inception in 2015, Shore Medical Center’s annual “A Cause to Celebrate” gala has highlighted our community’s need for high-quality cancer care close to home, while raising more than $2 million to enhance Shore Cancer Center’s comprehensive cancer program. This year, proceeds will specifically help Shore convert the oncology pharmacy in the cancer center to a negative pressure room in order to meet new federal requirements for all facilities that store and administer cancer-fighting medications. Chemotherapy and other drugs that kill cancer can have a serious impact on the health of those who handle them if there is a spill, and this update will help to keep them safer.
Proceeds this year will also continue to fund Shore Cancer Center’s ongoing subscription to Penn Medicine’s telegenetics program, which gives oncologists a greater understanding of the patient’s genetic markers so they can provide more targeted and effective treatment. Genetic testing through the program also is a necessary precursor to accessing certain trade drugs and biosimilars.
Dr. David May, a general surgeon with Shore Physicians Group and a leader in the Shore medical community – especially Shore Cancer Center - will be honored at the event for the difference he has made.
The event will feature a wide array of foods from around the world, an open bar with top shelf offerings, a band and dancing. There will also be spectacular entertainment featuring dramatic strength and balancing acts, a silent auction, and much more. Tickets are priced at $250 per person.
