The Overlook Auxiliary is “hosting” our second Phantom Ball on December 7, 2019. The Overlook Auxiliary is a volunteer organization cultivating a compassionate and comforting environment throughout the entire Medical Center community with active volunteering and imaginative fundraising.  The Phantom Ball is a twist on your typical fundraising gala.  In fact, it is a stay-at-home event.  In lieu of attending a formal event, we ask that you take the day to spend with family or friends and donate the money you would have spent on going out to the event, for a new outfit, transportation, and babysitting toward a great cause!  The proceeds will go to The Breast Center of Overlook to help defray the cost of novel technologies to improve care of patients with breast cancer.  1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and we want patients at Overlook Medical Center to receive the best possible care close to home.  

With your support, the Overlook Auxiliary can help patients treated at the Breast Center at Overlook Medical Center to have access to medical advances placing Overlook’s Breast Center on the leading edge of technology in the region.  Imagine being able to provide women with breast cancer the opportunity to have both her surgery and one dose of radiation in the operating room within one outpatient visit instead of facing 6 weeks of up to 30 radiation treatments.  Imagine equipping breast surgeons with a wireless localization tool that helps them find the cancer more quickly and accurately while informing the optimal approach for breast reconstruction.  How can you help?  Stay home on December 7 and participate in the most comfortable fundraising event ever!  We hope you will consider supporting the Overlook Auxiliary Phantom Ball this December by visiting oaux.org to donate!
