HAMIL­TON, N.Y. >> The sixth an­nual Share in the Care Gala will take place Satur­day, Oct. 20, at the Hall of Pres­i­dents at Col­gate Uni­ver­sity.

The 2018 theme, The Ex­cite­ment of the Board­walk, “prom­ises to bring the sights, sounds, foods, drinks, and en­ter­tain­ment from At­lantic City and Coney Is­land to Hamil­ton,” said event co-chairs Stephanie Fadale and Mary Brundage. “Par­tic­i­pants will en­joy a fun­filled evening while sup­port­ing our ru­ral health­care net­work. The sup­port­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions pro­vide a level of med­i­cal care far ex­ceed­ing what is found in most ru­ral ar­eas like ours.”

Lawrence Baker, the Hon­orary Chair of the 2018 Share in the Care Gala, will be rec­og­nized dur­ing the evening for his com­mit­ment to health in the com­mu­nity. Baker is a former hos­pi­tal board mem­ber, com­mu­nity ad­vo­cate, and long-time chair of the Com­mu­nity Me­mo­rial Foun­da­tion.

Pro­ceeds from the event are shared by three health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions, Com­mu­nity Me­mo­rial, SOMAC and CMH Aux­il­iary. A por­tion of the Share in the Care Gala pro­ceeds will en­able the hos- pital to pur­chase a new CT unit.

“Our cur­rent 12-yearold, 16-slice Siemens unit will be re­placed with a new Canon 80 slice ul­tra-he­li­cal CT scan­ner, which al­lows for shorter scan times and re­duces ra­di­a­tion ex­po­sure rates. The new unit cap­tures higher qual­ity images that bet­ter as­sists our ra­di­ol­ogy team in pa­tient di­ag­no­sis,” said Dawn Samp­son, se­nior di­rec­tor of op­er­a­tions at Com­mu­nity Me­mo­rial.

“SOMAC will al­lo­cate its funds from the gala to on­go­ing pay­ments for heart mon­i­tors and car­diopul­monary re­sus­ci­ta­tion vests for all three am­bu­lances,” said Vinny Faraone, SOMAC Board Pres­i­dent.

Sue Scull, pres­i­dent of the CMH Aux­il­iary de­scribed, us­ing the pro­ceeds to sup­port the most crit­i­cal needs of the hos­pi­tal.
