Join us at our annual Sporting Clay Shoot on Friday, June 14 at Silverleaf Shotgun Sports in Guthrie and the fourth annual Red Dirt Gala at 81 Ranch in Enid. We hope for all to relax and have fun after an all-day benefit to help cancer patients.
Supporting this event allows you to support our mission to improve the health of the people and the communities we serve. All proceeds from the clay shoot and gala directly benefit the INTEGRIS Foundation which enhances the quality of patient care and the health of our community. This year we will designate the funds to INTEGRIS Cancer Institute in Enid.
More about this year's beneficiary
Each year, 12.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer. It’s a devastating disease that knows no boundaries or limitations. But there is always hope, and at INTEGRIS we are here to help. Last year alone, the INTEGRIS Cancer Institute of Enid helped more than 500 local patients walk through their personal cancer journey. It’s a commitment made more than 40 years ago, when the INTEGRIS Foundation began investing in the Enid community by bringing cancer technologies, such as radiation oncology, to northwest Oklahoma.
INTEGRIS continues to make good on that promise. The health care system recently approved a $3.4M investment to bring a top of the line radiation beam to INTEGRIS Bass. This will be the only radiation beam of its kind in northwest Oklahoma and will be the same quality of the beams available in Oklahoma City. It is expected to be up and running by Sept. 16.
With a disease that touches so many people, have you ever wondered how you can help?
As part of ongoing efforts by the INTEGRIS Foundation to support patients within the community, INTEGRIS Cancer Institute of Enid would like to introduce a new program called CanServe. This program is designed to meet the dietary needs of cancer patients during the first week of treatment by providing one free meal a day for five days of perfectly portioned hot and healthy meals that are nutrient appropriate for cancer patients.
The gift of food is meant to provide comfort and nutrition when it is needed most and to give these patients one less thing to worry about. With your support and generosity to INTEGRIS’ efforts in aiding cancer patients, you are helping to alleviate one concern from their already cumbersome diagnosis. Your donation to the Red Dirt Gala will go back into the Enid community and into this program focused on helping cancer patients.
