SHELBYVILLE - The Shelbyville Lions Club will hold their annual world-famous spaghetti dinner on Tuesday, March 13 from 5-7 p.m. at the Lions Club.
Again, this year they are dedicating their proceeds to the HSHS Good Shepherd Foundation Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund.
Shelbyville Lions Club board member, Wayne Gray said, “We really appreciate the support of this community. We enjoy serving and can always anticipate a great turnout for our event. Our club helps others but we couldn’t do so if the public weren’t behind us. We are happy to support such a great cause for the women of Shelby County.”
The HSHS Good Shepherd Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund was set up to help Shelby County women with breast cancer who are actively seeking treatment with their out-of-pocket expenses. These expenses may include but are not limited to child care, travel, meals, wigs, mileage and parking.
Each applicant is considered on a case-by-case basis. To apply for assistance from the HSHS Good Shepherd Foundation Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund, please call the HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital financial counselor’s office at (217) 774-3961, extension 2460 for an appointment.
“Our hospital’s foundation began this fund in 2011, and we have helped several women since its inception,” said Aaron Puchbauer HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital CEO and president, “It is with the generous donations of individuals and organizations such as the Lions that we are able to do so. We are extremely grateful to have their support, and I thank them for making our fund a priority.”
