(Media, PA) The Riddle HealthCare Foundation hosted the hospital’s 30th Annual Pro-Am Golf Classic at The DuPont Country Club, with outstanding weather and golfers. The event raised over $50,000 for The Comprehensive Breast Center at Riddle. Included in the group of players were veteran Philadelphia Flyers Don Saleski, Bob Kelly, Steve Coates, Bob Dailey, Orest Kindrachuk and Ed Hospadar. “Supporting the care provided to breast cancer patients is an important reason to raise money today. The Riddle Hospital community benefits daily from the top professional and compassionate care of our nurses, doctors and staff who promise to deliver a superior patient experience. Of all the opportunities I have to volunteer my time, I have chosen to be affiliated with Riddle Hospital and Main Line Health, because I believe in the vision and mission of the organization and want to be part of their bright and exciting future,” said Don Saleski, foundation board member.
The Comprehensive Breast Center at Riddle Hospital, accredited by the National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers, brings together medical expertise, clinical resources and advanced technology, and an experienced team who supports patients through screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast diseases.
