Lexington Medical Center Foundation to Host New Year’s Eve Gala


West Columbia, S.C. – Are you looking for a fancy party to attend on New Year’s Eve to ring in 2017 with style? The Lexington Medical Center Foundation and Women of Hope will host the first New Year’s Eve Gala on Saturday, December 31 at the University of South Carolina Alumni Center in downtown Columbia. This premiere, black tie event will give the community an opportunity to celebrate with family and friends. And it benefits a great cause. Proceeds will fund the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s “Campaign for Clarity,” which is working toward providing 3-D mammography throughout Lexington Medical Center’s network of care.

The gala kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with guests enjoying a glass of champagne as they enter the party. Guests will enjoy a delicious variety of gourmet food and open bar and specialty drinks. Entertainment will include live music by The O’Kaysions, a local magician and a photo corner boutique. And, guests will have the opportunity to win premiere items such as women’s fine jewelry as well as vacation getaways with luxury accommodations.

At midnight, guests will welcome the new year with a champagne toast and the party will continue until 1:00 a.m. The evening will end with hamburger sliders, French fries and milk shakes.

This site will then direct guests to the block of rooms available at the Hilton Columbia Center, Hampton Inn – Vista, and Hyatt Place Columbia/Downtown.

“We are looking forward to a fantastic evening welcoming 2017 and paving the way for 3-D Mammography to be available throughout Lexington Medical Center’s network of care,” said Amy Lanier, executive director of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation. “We are inspired by the generous support to date. Until we can find a cure for breast cancer, we will focus on providing the best technology to the people of our community.”

3-D mammography creates a group of three-dimensional pictures of the breast and allows doctors to view tissue one millimeter at a time, making tiny details visible earlier and easier.

Studies have shown that 3-D mammography also reduces false positives and unnecessary callbacks for patients with dense breast tissue.

Lexington Medical Center currently offers 3-D mammography at its Women’s Imaging location on the hospital campus in West Columbia and the Northeast Columbia location of Sandhills Women’s Care, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.

Part of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation, Women of Hope members work together to benefit the health and wellness of women throughout our community. Open to all women in the Midlands, Women of Hope hosts special events and networking opportunities to raise awareness of critical health issues affecting women and their families.
