Vidant Cancer Center receives donation from Young Professionals

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The organization Young Professionals of Pitt County presented a check for $10,024.26 to the Vidant Cancer Center.

Last month, the group hosted the Wiggin’ Out Charity event. WNCT 9 On Your Side was a proud sponsor and Morning Edition’s Maria Satira served as the emcee.

Young Professionals are planning to host future fundraisers and events as well to benefit the Vidant Cancer Center.

“Donations like these every dollar counts,” Varessa Wall, Director of Development, “100% of the donation will go towards programs and services for patients. Nothing goes towards expenses whatsoever.”

Hospital staff says the funds will go toward patient services and resources for early detection of cancer.

“We’re again so appreciative,” said Wall, “and we’re going to fight this fight against cancer together. Together we can make a difference.”

The new cancer center is scheduled to open in March.
