UConn Coach Jim Calhoun to Speak at the SWIM Prostate Cancer Dinner on June 16

BRIDGEPORT - St. Vincent's 8th Annual SWIM Prostate Cancer Institute Celebrity Dinner is set for June 16 at the Holiday Inn.

The event will begin with a Celebrity Meet & Greet Reception at 6 p.m., a silent auction of unique sports memorabilia, and a dinner program at 7:15 p.m. with sports commentary.
Co-chaired by Bill Mitchell of Mitchells Westport and Frank Morse of Carter, Morse and Mathias in Fairfield, the event raised more than $100,000 last year to benefit the SWIM Prostate Cancer Institute at St. Vincent's Medical Center. Calhoun is the event's honorary chairman.
The funds raised from the dinner will allow the SWIM Prostate Cancer Institute to continue its free monthly community screening program for uninsured men age 50 to 60 and high-risk men age 40 to 50. The SWIM PCI provided prostate cancer screenings to more than 336 men in 2010. The SWIM PCI also sponsors monthly support groups, the Prostate Cancer Buddy Network, educational lecture series, clinical trials and financial assistance to cancer patients and their families when needed.
Tickets are $250 for the Meet & Greet Reception, Dinner & Program or $125 for the Dinner & Program only. Table sponsorships are also available.
To purchase tickets or for more information, contact St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation at 203-576-5451.
