Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City hosted a Community Ladies Banquet on Friday, Oct. 6, to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Baptist Union City Director of Admissions Jennifer Borneman served as master of ceremonies, addressing the crowd of 65.

The Community Ladies Banquet, a collaboration between Baptist Auxiliary, Radiology and Pastoral Care, started with a prayer and special music. The event also included testimonies and an educational component led by Radiology team members Jennifer Pierce, Dana Wright, Kaycie Plunk and Lorie Hardin. They spoke on screening and diagnostics, biopsy procedures and bone density.

Linda Knight, who works in Health Information Management, provided the invocation, while Anita Hayslett, respiratory therapist, performed a live solo.

Director of Pastoral Care, Chaplain Michael Dennison, said, “Our ladies provided a very special ceremony to honor individuals who are persevering with breast cancer. Our team of professionals provided information that not only educated our attendees, but also united our guests under the mission of Baptist Memorial Health Care: In keeping with the three-fold ministry of Christ – healing, preaching and teaching – Baptist is committed to providing quality health care.”

Chaplain Dennison continued, “The Ladies Banquet has been a long-standing tradition at Baptist Union City, and we plan to continue growing it to honor our Auxiliary who have spent many years instituting this blessing for the community.”
