UM Shore Regional Health Sporting Clays Classic to Benefit Wellness for Women Program at UM Comprehensive Breast Center

Tom Pyper, chair of UM Memorial Hospital Foundation’s upcoming 2nd Annual Sporting Clays Shoot, and Cheryl Hughes, sponsorship chairman, meet with members of the event’s fundraising committee.

The UM Shore Regional Health 2nd Annual Sporting Clays Classic will benefit the Wellness for Women Program at UM Shore Regional Comprehensive Breast Center at Easton. The event is set for June 11 at The Point at Pintail in Queenstown and will feature 75 targets, lunch and prizes for participants, raffles, a silent auction and side games.

According to Tom Pyper, committee chair for the event, the fundraising goal for the Sporting Clays Classic is to net $100,000. “This year’s event will provide funding for the Wellness for Women Program at UM Shore Regional Comprehensive Breast Center. That funding will allow the program to reach out into the community and provide screening services to those who otherwise might never have the opportunity to get life-saving education and screening services,” Pyper says.
