The Southern Ocean Medical Center Foundation’s second annual Signature Social fundraising event, held at Bonnet Island Estate, was attended by more than 225 people and raised more than $100,000 in support of programs and services at the hospital. Guests had the opportunity to learn more about the hospital’s 16,000-square-foot cancer care center expansion and renovation, which is scheduled to be completed in September.

“The Signature Social offers a chance for us to connect with the community and partner on providing optimal care for all patients,” said Joseph P. Coyle, president of the Southern Ocean Medical Center, in Manahawkin. “Thanks to this year’s event chairs, Joseph Lattanzi, M.D., Kimberly Hogan, M.D, Thomas Yu, M.D. and Jane Yu, it was an incredible event attended by so many generous individuals who are dedicated to supporting their local hospital.”

The reception was generously supported by several sponsors, including leadership sponsors, SOMC’s medical staff and Southern Ocean Center Genesis HealthCare.
