QUEENSTOWN — The annual Sporting Clays Classic, which benefits the University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation, is set for Saturday, Oct. 24 at The Point at Pintail in Queenstown.
Proceeds will help pay for a Faxitron machine for the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center at UM Shore Regional Health in Easton. The Faxitron is used by surgeons to evaluate an area that has been identified for removal by mammography.
Dr. Roberta J. Lilly, medical director of the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center, said the Faxitron "allows us to capture digital images of specimens that can be sent to radiology immediately, thus reducing the time a patient is anesthetized.”
“We are deeply grateful for the community’s commitment to help ensure we have state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosis and treatment,” Lilly said in a prepared statement.
This is the sixth edition of the Sporting Clays Classic, which is a 75-target event with prizes. There also will be raffles and a silent auction.
Registration is at 8 a.m.; the shoot will begin at 9:15 a.m.
The cost is $125 per person, or $500 for a team of four.
