STEGH Foundation presents Breast Health is Forever at Caso Royale Fundraising Gala in St. Thomas, ON. Breast Health is Forever is the inspiration behind this year's signature event for the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation. This is the Foundation's second annual fundraising gala with this year's proceeds being directed towards the purchase of a digital mammography unit to support patient care excellence at STEGH.

Following the success of last year's Chair Affair, the STEGH Foundation returns to the CASO Station on Saturday evening, October 18th, 2014. This year's theme is inspired by the sophistication and flamboyance of legendary British Secret Service agent, James Bond.

"Building upon last year's success won't be easy," says Foundation Board Director Dr. Bill Abbott, "but there is definitely excitement in the air, and we can't wait to unveil all of the planning and preparation that has taken place."

"Don't gamble with your health, gamble for it. After all, Breast Health is Forever," says Foundation Executive Director Paul Jenkins. "CASO Royale promises to be a memorable night that will mix glamour and intrigue with fundraising for a great cause. More importantly, this incredible evening will help improve the excellent quality care we already provide to the families and friends who depend on our award-winning Hospital."

STEGH is an accredited site with the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) - a program of Cancer Care Ontario. "Our Hospital is committed to providing high-quality breast cancer screening," says Diagnostic Imaging and Laboratory Manager Kathy Sophocleous. "A replacement digital mammography unit will provide new technology that combines the results of digital mammography and Breast Tomosynthesis* in one unit. This will result in increased diagnostic accuracy, ultimately resulting in better patient care. New advanced ergonomic designs will also provide increased patient comfort which is a welcome advancement."

CASO Royale Gala Tickets are $100 each and include dinner by the bite, gaming and prizes, as well as other interactive entertainment throughout the night. A limited number of tickets are available and are on sale now at the Foundation Office by calling 519-631-2030, ext. 2246. Businesses interested in becoming involved or promoting the event are invited to contact Joanne Beaton at the Foundation Office.

*Breast Tomosynthesis is the ability to capture multiple low-dose images that are then produced into a 3-D reconstruction of the breast.

Since 1985, the STEGH Foundation has played an integral role in supporting patient care excellence at the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital by independently raising funds to acquire patient care equipment, support educational endeavours, and upgrade the Hospital's physical facilities. Our Mission is to partner with the community to support our award-winning Hospital in the delivery of an excellent patient care experience.
