NEW MAMMOGRAPHY SOFTWARE FOR THE BREAST

HEALTH CENTER AT CHS NORTHEAST

The NorthEast Foundation recently funded Hologic Low Dose

3D Mammography - C-View Software for the Breast Health

Center and mobile mammogram unit at CHS NorthEast so

they possess the necessary tools to remain at the forefront of

early breast cancer detection in our community. The C-View

software is clinically proven to increase invasive cancer

detection and decrease recall rates. It also lowers a patient’s

radiation dose and compression time leading to greater

patient comfort.

It was truly a night of celebration, as 600 guests filled the Cabarrus

Arena & Events Center on March 9 for the 25th Anniversary Gala of

Lights. Led by Gala Co-chairs Diane Honeycutt and Cyndie Mynatt, the

30 committee members, 25 volunteers and NorthEast Foundation Staff

transformed the arena into a wonderland to raise over $181,000 for our

hospital CHS NorthEast.

The money raised will continue to provide funding for innovative

programs, specialized equipment and additional needs like the update

to the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). The CAC upgrade funding was

a special request made by Founding and Current Board Member Ann

Cannon, an honorary Gala Chair along with her husband Bill Cannon.

Guests were greeted by a snowy entrance as they walked up to the venue.

Once inside guests were able to mingle in several areas including a VIP

reception, the silent auction area and the Ice Lounge. The main ballroom

opened at 8 p.m. and attendees were wowed by the transformation. The

program featured information on the 25 years of the Foundation, the

presentation of the Lillibridge Outstanding Physician Awards and the

live auction before dancing into the night with local musical favorite Too

Much Sylvia.

AND THE WINNER IS…

Congratulations to Ann Cook

who won the $10,000 raffle prize!

Ann stopped by the NorthEast

Foundation office after work

one day and purchased her

winning ticket. Ann is a CHS

NorthEast Teammate who was not

in attendance at the gala, so the

NorthEast Foundation staff, with

the help of CHS NE President Phyllis Wingate and VP of

Administration Tri Tang, had the pleasure of surprising Ann

with the news the following Monday!

A special thank you to board member Dean Wike who

sold the most raffle tickets for the Gala.

Special thanks to Gala
