Gold Rush 2019 to Benefit Mobile Mammography Efforts October 8, 2019

Longview, Texas – The CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center - Longview Guild will be showing off a brand-new look at Gold Rush 2019 when the newly rebranded Mobile Mammography Bus will be on hand during the annual fundraising event.

Each year, the Guild votes to support a needed service or project that is recommended to them from CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center - Longview, and Gold Rush has played a vital role in the development and advancement of such services as the Heart Center, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Perinatology Clinic and Women's Center, the Shepherd House and this year’s recipient, the Digital Mobile Mammography Service and 3D Mammography Technology.

This year, CHRISTUS Good Shepherd's Annual Gold Rush fundraiser is set for Saturday, October 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center. The “A Night in Old Havana” themed party will feature spectacular food, dancing, a silent and live auction and a car raffle – all while benefiting the 3D mammography equipment for the mobile mammography bus.

“Since 1984, the Guild has raised more than $9 million for CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center - Longview and has directed their philanthropic efforts toward such areas as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Institute for Healthy Living, Mobile Mammography Unit and more throughout the decades,” said Aliceson Howell, executive director of development at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Health System. “In 2010, with this community’s support we were able to purchase the Mobile Mammography Bus. And today, we are honored by the efforts of the Guild and by the continued commitment of this community to support CHRISTUS Good Shepherd and our mission in Northeast Texas as we look to build on this wonderful legacy.
