9th annual ‘Harvest of Hope’ this week

The Connie Dwyer Breast Center at St. Michael’s Medical Center, Newark, will host its ninth annual “Harvest of Hope” Friday, Oct. 17, at 6:30 p.m., at the Park Savoy Estate in Florham Park.

The event includes a cocktail reception, dinner and dancing, an awards presentation, a live auction, silent auction and 50/50 raffle.

Proceeds will support the Connie Dwyer Breast Center’s mission to provide top-quality breast care — from screening and diagnosis to treatment and followup –for all women.

Over the years, funds raised have allowed the center to purchase the most innovative technology in breast imaging, including two 3-D mammography suites with tomosynthesis, two advanced ultrasound units and equipment to offer 24-hour rapid diagnosis to breast biopsy patients.
