Events Benefit the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s McDaniels-Pucci Cancer Fund
Join the Lexington Medical Center Foundation on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23, 2022, for the McDaniels Automotive Group Golf Classic and Gala benefitting Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s McDaniels-Pucci Cancer Fund.
“We’re very excited to raise funds to enhance cancer care at Lexington Medical Center and for life-saving cancer screenings for those in need,” said Amy Lanier, executive director of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation. “Funds will also be used to assist all cancer patients throughout their entire journey, from day one detection to survivorship after ringing the bell.”
The weekend will kick off Friday, April 22 with the McDaniels Golf Classic at Fort Jackson Golf Club. Purchase of a four-person team also includes two gala tickets. An amenity bag, brunch and after-play dinner are provided to each player.
The gala will be Saturday, April 23 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. The black-tie optional event will be from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. It will feature live and silent auctions, live music and delicious food. Complimentary valet is provided.
“Our local hospital can make an impact on fighting this disease,” said Bill McDaniels, president, owner and founder of McDaniels Automotive Group. “We need to all get behind this cause and help fund the fight against cancer. Together, we can save lives.”
The live auction will feature exciting experiences and destination trips, an original painting by local artist Michael Story, a one-of-a kind party package and fireworks show, and more.
“It’s important that everyone knows these funds are directly helping to save lives in our community,” said event chair Suzanne Pucci. “Early detection is key, which is why the funds generated from this event are so important.”
The funds raised will help support patients from their diagnosis through their transition to survivorship. Funding will directly benefit Foundation programs that provide transportation to and from appointments and radiation and infusion treatments, emergency assistance which helps meet basic needs for cancer patients, and cancer support groups which provide strength, hope and peer support. Funds raised will also help with more significant purchases throughout the year including bariatric infusion chairs, a stereotactic breast biopsy system and additional 3-D mammography units in the hospital network.
