Community invited to fundraiser on October 20 at Crowne Plaza
Suffern, NY (October 10, 2016) – It’s not often that women have an opportunity to stand up for an important cause with standup comedy. Add to that luxury shopping, mini makeovers, a learning session and dinner.
The community is invited to Good Samaritan Hospital’s Girls’ Night Out, a social evening with an important purpose, on Thursday, October 20, 6 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza in Suffern.
Funds raised at Girls’ Night Out will support The Center for Breast Health at Good Samaritan Hospital. Rockland County resident and standup comedian Regina DeCicco will share the spotlight with Karen Karsif, M.D., director of The Center for Breast Health. The evening includes dinner, a high-end shopping experience, mini makeovers, a silent action, raffles and more fun that anyone can pack into a shopping bag. The cost to attend is $50.
“Breast health is every woman’s concern. The more women, younger and older, who know about breast disease, the better armed we all are to achieve optimal health,” said Dr. Karsif. “October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is the perfect time for our community to come together to support local access to advanced healthcare.”
“I am thrilled to be a part of Girls’ Night Out,” said Ms. DeCicco. “As I local resident whose family has supported Good Samaritan for many years, I know how important it is offer our community high quality care, here where we all live.”
Ms. DeCicco, who made her TV debut on AXS-TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live,” has been featured on FOX’s “Laughs” and has performed at colleges across the U.S. She’s brought laughs to audiences at the Nantucket Comedy Festival, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and Boston’s Women in Comedy Festival. She has also performed in Shanghai, China.
