Women’s Group Raises $20k for 3D Mammography Machine
Oct 17, 2017
An informal women’s group who call themselves the “18 holers” raised $20,000 to go toward the purchase of a new 3D mammography machine at the Jean McLaughlin Women’s Center at Palomar Medical Center Poway. The group recruited more than 100 family and friends to participate in a golf tournament, silent auction, and raffle at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo on Oct. 12. All the proceeds were donated to the Palomar Health Foundation earmarked for the purchase of a 3D mammography machine, which will detect breast cancer cells 41% earlier than traditional mammography machines. This donation brings total fundraising to about the halfway point of the total cost of the machine.
