Memorial Health Care System Foundation and Hamico Foundation presented the 9th Annual Pink! gala on Saturday, January 25, 2014, at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Net proceeds from the evening exceeded $250,000 to benefit the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center at Memorial. The crowd of more than 1,000 guests were addressed by chair couple, Scott and Donna Mattice who said “Chattanooga is blessed to have this amazing facility right here in our hometown, dedicated to not just fighting and preventing this dreaded disease but also to the care and well-being of its patients. Breast cancer has impacted each of us in some personal way a mom, sister, wife, family member or friend. Please know your presence here tonight will provide care and comfort to patients and families in need.” Jennifer Nicely, Memorial Foundation President and Chief Development Officer said “Pink! is a celebration of life for breast cancer patients and survivors raising more than $2 million since 2006 to ensure our community has access to the most advanced breast cancer treatments available. The Pink! committee and staff of Memorial Foundation are grateful for the support by the community for this event.” Next year’s Pink! gala will be held Saturday, January 31, 2015.
