For Immediate Release March 15, 2017

Women & Girls Fund of the Mid-Shore, which is a field-of-interest fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, recently made a donation of $25,000 to University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation to purchase specialized equipment for the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center in Easton.

“The Women & Girls Fund of the Mid-Shore is thrilled to help fund the purchase of new equipment that provide such comprehensive services on the shore”, says Talli Oxnam, Board President. “This is the largest grant in our 15 year history, which demonstrates the value we place on the services and service providers at the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center at Shore Regional Health.”

Funds were raised by two key events in 2016 hosted by the Women & Girls Fund of the Mid-Shore; The September Ladies Golf Clinic & Tournament and the October Humor, Heart, Hope program and luncheon featuring New York Times best-selling author and breast cancer survivor Kelly Corrigan.
