Integrated Medical Foundation (IMF), is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. With prostate cancer being the world's second most prevalent form of cancer in men after skin cancer, the goal of IMF is to provide the community with critical information about Prostate Cancer; provide free prostate cancer screenings, free support groups, and educate the public about the importance of early detection of prostate cancer.
Bruce Morrell, whose name marks this event, was the founding caterer of Morrell Catering in Woodbury. He lost his battle to prostate cancer in 1998. Bruce had a sense of community and was passionate about his philanthropy.
Prostate cancer affects our loved ones.... our fathers, grandfathers, husbands, brothers, uncles, sons, grandsons, friends, neighbors and colleagues. 1 out of 6 men (1 out of 4 African American men) will have prostate cancer in their lifetime. 230,000 men a year are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, and 30,000 of them will die.
The elegant evening will include a cocktail party, and dinner followed by loads of laughs with one of the best comics in the country. Call 631-247-0100 to find out more!
