The Miriam Hospital recently welcomed more than 475 guests to its annual Wine & Dine Gala and Auction fundraiser, held at the North Central Airport in Smithfield. The event raised more than $462,000 to support The Miriam Fund for a New Generation as well as The Patient Navigator Program at The Leonard and Adele R. Decof Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at The Miriam Hospital.

The evening featured a cooking challenge among local chefs, which was won by Castle Hill Inn’s Chef Karsten Hart. There was also a dinner catered by Russell Morin Fine Catering, a live auction, music and dancing.

“It was gratifying to see how enthusiastically people bid during the live auction in support of our Patient Navigator Program,” said Alan Litwin, chair of The Miriam Hospital board of trustees. “Clearly, cancer has touched the lives of many in our community. Patient Navigators quite literally help our cancer patients navigate their way through the often complex and murky waters of cancer treatment. They make such an important difference.”

Dr. Timothy J. Babineau, president and CEO of Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital, added, “Our goal is to ensure that every cancer patient who comes through our doors has that special someone, a nurse navigator, to take them by the hand.”
